FISU Delegates Arrive in Taipei, Inspect 2017 Universiade Preparation Progress

With the approach of the 2017 Summer Universiade in Taipei, a delegation from the International University Sports Federation (FISU) arrived in Taipei on January 27 for an inspection trip.
The delegation is headed by FISU Summer Universiade Director Marc Vandenplas. City agencies provided briefing to the delegation on progress on the respective fields.
Regarding preparation progress, the delegates inspected details spanning major milestones, adjustments, volunteer requirements and deployment, boarding and accommodation of media and referees, to banquet attire.
During the onsite inspection at the construction site of the Universiade village, the FISU delegation provided information on facility planning issues from the 2013 Universiade in Kazan, Russia. Hopefully, the issues regarding bed space and restroom allocation will help improve the plans drafted by Taipei’s preparation committee. Other details discussed include ID and clearance of athletes, planning of a cardiac examination center, and parking space placement.
The three-day-long inspection visit will also cover topics such as marketing, dining, transportation, venues, and athletes’ village. This trip will be followed by another inspection visit by the FISU Universiade Supervision Committee slated for the end of May.
