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.
