Bridge

The 1st World University Bridge Championship took place in 2002 in Bruges, Belgium, and welcomed 65 players from 13 countries. The 2018 WUC Bridge took place in Xuzhou (China). Find more information about the history of Bridge within FISU here.

Chess

Chess was introduced in FISU in the early nineties as a natural consequence of its high esteem in academic circles and the events have always enjoyed great success. The first two editions were staged in Odessa (Ukraine, former USSR) in 1990 and in Antwerp (Belgium) in 1992. The 2018 WUC Bridge took place in Aracaju (Brazil).
