On 25 June 2014, FISU announced that Slovakia would become the co-host of 2015 Winter Universiade. FISU approved to move the Nordic Skiing and Biathlon events to Štrbské Pleso and Osrblie in Slovakia.[3] This decision had been taken to anticipate the difficulties faced by the Granada 2015 Organising Committee in hosting these particular events.[4]
