To their collective credit the IUFU and WSCAI through Student Sport Ireland and it’s predecessor CUSAI have persevered with participation in biennial Mens and Womens Football with one absentee in 2011 at Shenzhen, China, (near Hong Kong) because of economic grounds.

These all-island representative squads with the presentation of Gender Equality of players from Colleges & Universities Football Leagues CUFL and Womens Soccer Colleges Assoc. of Ireland WSCAI leagues culminates in this participation of this twice-yearly mini-olympics.

As is usual at the event Football starts on day 0, one day before the Opening Ceremony (Wed July 03rd) and the Mens Final takes place a day before the closing ceremony (Sun July 14th). SSC Napoli’s home ground Stadio San Paolo will host the Athletics. There will be plenty of opportunities to see the Stadium and Athletics in between travelling to/from and supporting Irish Football. With 18 sports in total Basketball, Swimming, Volleyball, Rugby Sevens (training at Albricci Stadium former SSC Napoli home) will also be popular. Many of the athletics participating have represented or will represent their nations at full International level. Thomas Barr (Univ. Limerick/Ferrycarrig AC) won gold in the 400 Metres Hurdles at 2015 Gwangju, Rep of Korea. At Sheffield 1991 Sonia O’Sullivan (Gold 1500m, Silver 3000m) and Niall Bruton (Gold 1500m) is still fondly remembered by Universiade-aficionados.
