The FISU General Assembly voted on the 12th (Saturday) as Chungcheon, South Korea beat North Carolina in the U.S to hold FISU flagship event

The 2027 Summer Universiade Chungcheong Joint Bid Committee has succeeded in hosting the 2027 Summer Universiade, which is called one of the "Sports Big 4" events.

The International University Sports Federation (FISU) confirmed and announced the Chungcheong region of South Korea as the venue for World University Games Summer in 2027 through an executive committee vote in Brussels, Belgium, at 1 p.m. on the 12th (9 p.m. Korean time).

The Chungcheong region, which won the bid against North Carolina in the U.S., will host the competition for the fourth time in Korea after the Muju Winter Universiade in 1997, the Daegu Summer Universiade in 2003, and the Gwangju Summer Universiade in 2015.

The Chungcheong region, which won the bid against North Carolina in the U.S., will host the competition for the fourth time in Korea after the Muju Winter Universiade (무주전주 동계유니버시아드) in 1997, the Daegu Summer Universiade (대구 하계유니버시아드) in 2003, and the Gwangju Summer Universiade (광주 하계유니버시아드) in 2015.

The Chungcheong region's bid seems to have been largely attributed to the presentation at the International University Sports Federation (FISU) General Assembly, as well as the 1 million signatures containing the nation's desire to host the Chungcheong region. 

The Committee said the presentation was well received by the executive committee members for explaining the Chungcheong region's strengths and main concepts, including its vision, mega-city blueprint and education culture, IT-technology, environmental preservation, sustainability, and low-cost-high-efficiency competitions.

In order to win the bid until the end, the joint delegation of four provincial governors, council chairmen, sports chairmen, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism (체육회장과 문화체육관광부), the Korea Sports and Olympics Committee (대한체육회), the Korean University Sports Federation (대한대학스포츠위원회), reporters and bid committee officials also worked their hardest.

As the Chungcheong region was confirmed as the venue for the 2027 competition, the joint delegation signed an agreement with the International University Sports  Federation (FISU) at the general meeting site.

Daejeon Mayor Lee Jang-woo (이장우), who attended the general meeting as a co-representative of the committee, said, "I am very happy that Chungcheong-do jointly challenged and succeeded in hosting the competition," and added, "I will do my best to prepare for a successful competition in the future."
