Completion of 2017 Taipei Summer Universiade Venues Progress on Schedule

2017 Taipei Summer Universiade will be held over a period of 12 days next year, from August 19 through 30. After numerous visits by the International University Sports Federation (FISU) and International Technical Committee (CTI), the Taipei City Government is inviting four other municipalities and 14 universities to co-host the event. Of the nearly 60 venues slated for the competitions, 14 had been completed by late November 2016; the first to be finished was the Taipei Gymnasium (for badminton), followed by the Neihu Vocational High School Gymnasium, Taipei Municipal Nanhu High School Gymnasium, Central Police University Martial Arts Stadium, Beitou Resort Gymnasium, Taipei Arena Basketball Stadium, Taoyuan City Athletic Field, Taoyuan City Swimming Pool , Taipei Municipal Chenggong High School Gymnasium, Hsing Wu University Gymnasium , Yingfeng Riverside Park Football Field, University of Taipei (Tianmu) Athletic Field, Yingfeng Riverside Park Roller Sports Rink, and New Taipei City Banshu Gymnasium.
The Summer Universiade will leave behind more than just the venues. Other tangible and intangible results will also be preserved, including the integration of social resources, green sustainable development and environmental protection, improvements in urban transportation, economic benefits, and the popularization of sports. This, in fact, is one of the major preparatory tasks of 2017 Taipei Summer Universiade Organizing Committee: not only to ensure the success of the games, but also to build up more resources for Taiwan and its people.
