The 2025 Winter Universiade, officially known as the XXXII Winter Universiade, and commonly known as Torino 2025, is a multi-sport event scheduled from 13 to 23 January 2025 in Turin, Italy. The Piedmontese capital was confirmed as the host city for the games on May 15, 2021.[1]

Bidding Process

On July 6, 2020, representatives from the City of Turin, Piedmont Region, University of Turin, Polytechnic of Turin, CUS Turin, EDISU and University of Eastern Piedmont formally announced their candidature to host the 2025 games.[2] The bid, known as "Torino 2025" included intentions to host para-sports events, in tandem with the 2025 Winter Special Olympics. The Italian government's Minister of Sport, Vincenzo Spadafora, confirmed his strong support for the candidature on July 7, 2020.[3] The city has hosted the 1959 and 1970 Summer Universiades, the 2007 Winter Universiade, the 2006 Winter Olympics and Paralympics and has a tradition of hosting international sporting events.

The other 3 countries that announced their intentions to host the event are Switzerland, Finland and Sweden, with Stockholm making the shortlist along with Turin.[4]
