Universiade in Naples

The stadium that exulted for Maradona’s goals. The regatta course a few metres from Castel dell’Ovo. The tennis matches in the prestigious club with a view of the gulf. Only Naples can offer such impressive locations for the Universiade 30th Edition, the World University Games that will take place July 3 to 14 in Naples and other cities in Campania.
More than 8,000 athletes are coming from 127 countries to earn medals for 18 disciplines: sport lovers are excited to see the matches and training sessions in tens of sports facilities renovated on this occasion.
The Universiade is also a festival of culture. The treble voices choir will perform at San Carlo Theatre on July 8, Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana will be on stage on July 9, and the dancer Sergei Polunin will be in Ravello on July 12. The audience will have the opportunity to appreciate the excellence of Naples, but also Salerno, Benevento, Avellino, Caserta and the rest of Campania.
Tickets are available at Vivaticket sales points, on www.universiade2019napoli.it or at the ticket office an hour before the match starts.
