“I have to be very clear about this point: since Fisu and the Organizing Committee of Napoli 2019 signed the contract, FISU has never ever any kind of B plan. We trust on the Italian committee, we would like to have the games here and we will have the games in Napoli”. This is the statement of the first vice president of FISU Leonz Eder after the CSU inspection visit that took place in Napoli on January 30 and 31.
CSU and ARU have taken the stock of situation about all the functional aspects of the organizing committee and have visited some venues like San Paolo Stadium, Piscina Scandone, PalaBarbuto and Mostra d’Oltremare. “We’re looking for great game to be held in Napoli and Campania. We have had a very good impression but on the other hand many Head of Departments have not yet been appointed and the main chance now is to hire people and companies because the planning is very good and there is a good experience for technicians also, but now is necessary to hire people and we have told this to commissioner Latella also. – noted Mr. Eder – There are only 18 months and it’s not much time. I’m impressed from the staff, the venues and the knowledge but now we have to speed up to hire people. The human resources are the most important challenge right now but I’m very confident that we will have great game in 2019 with a big legacy not only for Italy, but also for FISU and for all the delegations that will come to Naples. We are very curious about the Athletes Village in the ships: this will be the first time for FISU too and will be a great innovation”.
