Press Release from the World Bridge Federation - April 5, 2001

The World Bridge Federation is very pleased to announce that the FISU (Fédération Internationale du sport Universitaire - the International University Sports Federation) is to launch the First World University Bridge Championships, to be held from 02 - 11 August 2002 in Bruges, Belgium.

All Federations are strongly urged to send a University team to this event. It is extremely important that such Championships are well supported to demonstrate the commitment of all bridge playing nations to the Sport of Bridge in this type of environment.

The wholehearted support of NBOs for this Championship will also assist in enhancing the image of bridge in the eyes of their own National Olympic Committee as well as the IOC and other Sports based bodies, thus hopefully bringing the prospect of Bridge as an acknowledged Olympic discipline even closer.
