A signboard of the 2017 Summer Universiade in Taipei. Taipei is selected as host of the 2017 Summer Universiade on November 29, 2011.

The cities of Brasília, Brazil and Taipei, Taiwan were in contention for the Games. On November 29, 2011, FISU announced that the host would be Taipei [1]

Venue changes[edit]

In June 2015, Taipei's Mayor Ko Wen-je announced that organizers had shifted the opening and closing ceremonies from the Taipei Dome to the Taipei Municipal Stadium due to delays in the construction of the domed stadium.[2]

[edit]

The logo for the event was redesigned three times before a final choice, created by Yu Ming-lung, was selected.[3]
