NCBC

The North Carolina Bid Committee (NCBC) is comprised of individuals who are helping with, supporting, and leading an initiative to attract the 2027 Summer World University Games, the world's second-largest Olympic sports event (behind only the Olympic Games), to the Raleigh-Durham-Cary-Chapel Hill area of North Carolina,  commonly referred to as the Triangle.

As the name would suggest, the World University Games include the top collegiate athletes from across the globe, which makes the Triangle, with its 10 colleges and universities and more than 195,000 college students, an ideal host community for the Games.

The World University Games have significant positive impacts on a host city, from the in-person visits of the 10,000 participants from more than 150 countries to the more than 3,000 hours of broadcast coverage and over 300 million viewers. Demonstrated economic impacts of the Games have exceeded more than $150 million.

Preparing a bid for a global event of this stature is a monumental task! Although the Games will not be held until 2027, the bid process actually began in 2018 with initial communications between the Triangle Sports Commission (TSC) and the United States International University Sports Federation (USIUF).  

After three years of work, on February 17, 2021, the North Carolina Triangle Region was selected by the USIUSF to be their Host City Partner in America’s bid for the 2027 Summer World University Games. That same day the USIUSF sent a formal Letter of Intent to Bid to FISU, indicating the United States’ intentions to bid on, and host, the 2027 Summer World University Games.

The formal bid process for the Games begins in September 2021 and the host cities for the 2027 and 2029 Summer World University Games will be announced in January 2023. From now through 2021 and 2022, the NCBC will be working overtime to position North Carolina and the Triangle region as the top choice to host the Games in 2027.

It's a major effort, but anyone with a strong interest in, and passion for, the cause can get involved. Support can range from volunteer assistance to financial contributions. Feel free to explore our website to learn more about the WUG effort and where you can contribute best.
