The 2013 Winter Universiade, the XXVI Winter Universiade, was a winter multi-sport event which took place in Trentino, Italy, between 11 to 21 December 2013. This was the first time in a Winter Universiade was happened after the Summer Universiade on same year and in the end of the year and missing two months for the start 2014 Winter Olympic Games. Originally, it was planned take place in Maribor, Slovenia in late January and early February,[1] but the Government of Slovenia overturned its decision to partially fund the project due to financial problems in February 2012.[2] In March 2012, the International University Sports Federation decided that it would organise the Universiade elsewhere.[3]

FISU officially announced that the Trentino region of Italy would host the event.[4]

Bid selection[edit]

The city of Maribor (Slovenia) was the only one bidding city for the event. On May 31, 2008, Maribor won the right to host the event, but later withdrew.

After the FISU revoke the rights of Maribor, began secret negotiations with the region of Trentinoe that, for financial reasons, withdrawn the bidding of Winter Universiade 2017. Two weeks after the resignation, negotiations were completed and so Trentino was formalized as host region.The factor that gives a boom for the negotiations was the fact that their infrastructure was ready and did not need improvement works.[5]
