The 2019 Summer Universiade, the XXX Summer Universiade (Italian: Universiadi estive 2019) will be held in Naples, Italy, between 3 and 14 July 2019.[3]

It was initially scheduled for Brasília, Brazil in July 2019. This would have been the second time Brazil hosted the event, the second time the event was held in the Southern Hemisphere and the second time it was held during the winter in the host city. Brazil hosted the event for the first time in Porto Alegre in 1963.

However, on 23 December 2014, it was confirmed that Brasília withdrew from hosting the event, citing financial problems.[4] International University Sports Federation decided to reopen the bidding process after the withdrawal.[5]

Host selection[edit]

On 14 June 2012, the then-Brazilian Minister of Sports, Aldo Rebelo, and the president of CBDU (Confederação Brasileira do Desporto Universitário), Luciano Cabral announced that after the failed bidding of the 2017 they will bid again for the Summer Universiade in 2019.[6] Brazil's capital Brasília was appointed as the bid city again after it lost the 2017 Summer Universiade to Taipei.[7] Brazil hosted the Summer Universiade just one time in 1963 in Porto Alegre.

On 11 December 2012, Azad Rahimov, the Youth and Sports Minister of Azerbaijan, announced that after the country wins the bid for the first European Games.[8] Is a first time which Azerbaijan puts a bid for the Universiade, where Baku will represent the country as bid city.[9]

On 31 January 2013, Miklós Tóth, the vice-chairman of Hungarian Olympic Committee, announced that Hungary will make a bid for the 2019 or 2021 Summer Universiade with the aid of Alfréd Hajós' Plan (Hajós Alfréd Terv).[10] Budapest hosted the 1965 Summer Universiade and confirmed as bid city on 19 February 2013.[11]

On 3 April 2013, FISU, officially confirmed three candidate cities:[12]

On 31 October 2013, Baku officially withdrew from the bidding process for the 2019 Summer Universiade, citing that the city will be busy with other sporting events in the period of 2015–2017, with the 2015 European Games and the 2017 Islamic Solidarity Games.[13] On 8 November 2013, Budapest withdrew because the city could not afford the costs of the event, leaving Brasilia as the only bidding city.[14] On 9 November 2013, FISU nominated Brasilia as host city of the 2019 Summer Universiade.[15] On 5 March 2016, FISU reattributed the 2019 Universiade to Naples, Italy.[16]
