Host Venues

The 2017 Taipei Summer Universiade is expected to use a total of 78 venues (38 competition venues and 40 practice venues).

There are two newly constructed venues (Taipei Tennis Center and Taipei Basketball Gymnasium) included, but these venues were planned before Taipei’s Universiade candidature. The other 76 venues are already existing and will simply be reconstructed/refurbished for the Universiade.

All 78 venues are planned under FISU regulation, environmental protection and conservation principles. The revision of plans will be comprehensively evaluated based on the results of venue over-all inspections, event schedules, numbers of participation, conditions of transportation and will be finalised after FISU Technical Officials have approved them.
