Other Information

Universiades v World University Archery Championships.

The World University Games or Universiade is a multi-sport event that takes place every 2 years (in odd numbered years) with core and guest sports. There is a Summer and a Winter Universiade. Non-core sports usually have a stand alone World University Championships held every 2 years (in even numbered years). However, if a sport is a guest sport for a three consecutive Universiades it becomes a compulsory sport, with the separate World University Championship discontinued.

FITA announced in June 2012 that archery becomes a compulsory Universiade sport from 2019 onwards. (FITA, FISU). The final World Uni Archery Champs took place in 2016.

In 2020, FISU dropped the name "Universiade" in favour of "World University Games".
