SPORTS BULLETIN REPORT North Carolina (USA):-The North Carolina Bid Committee (NCBC) for the 2027 World University Games has hosted the FISU Evaluation Committee in conjunction with NCBC’s bid for the 2027 FISU World University Games. “We have been thrilled to host the top leadership at FISU this week on their FISU evaluation site visit as an important part of the bid process for the 2027 FISU World University Games,” said Hill Carrow, Chairman and CEO of NCBC. “The site visit has provided us with the opportunity to showcase North Carolina’s capacity and capabilities for delivering an incredible FISU Games in 2027.” The FISU evaluation site visit also included key United States organizations that are critical partners in the bid, such as the U.S. International University Sports Federation (USIUSF), the US member of FISU, and the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee. “Our local colleges and universities have been working together on significant initiatives for years,” said Jo Allen, President of Meredith College. “That presents a major advantage for the teamwork among our institutions that will be required to host the 2027 FISU World University Games.” Roy Cooper, Governor of North Carolina, did an official hand-off of North Carolina’s Bid Book for the Games to Leonz Eder, FISU Acting President. “Obviously we want the World University Games right here in North Carolina. The love of sports here in our state is a real passion and the Games will emphasize not only how sports can bring us all together across the world, but the importance of our colleges and universities,” Roy Cooper said. “There are 130 colleges and universities in North Carolina, with 19 of those in the Games Host Region, and we know that this would be a fantastic place to host the Games.” Leonz Eder expressed the great appreciation of the Evaluation Committee for “an excellent and highly productive site visit”. “The North Carolina Bid Committee showed us their outstanding sports competition and training venues and their excellent Games Village sites. University sports belong to the universities and to go back on these North Carolina university campuses with this event is inspiring,” he said.
