    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Winter Universiade 2021 will be held in the central Swiss town of Lucerne and its vicinity, the International University Sports Federation (FISU) said Saturday.

    Earlier in the day, the FISU Executive Committee held a meeting to discuss a number of issues, including the host cities for the Universiades in future.

    "FISU attributes 2021 Winter Universiade to Lucerne & Central Switzerland," FISU said on its Facebook account.

    The Universiade, also called as the World Student Games or World University Games is an international sport event for university sportsmen.

In 2017, Kazakh capital of Astana will be the host city of the event, while Russia's Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk will held the Universiade in 2019.
