The flag of the International University Sports Federation (FISU) has arrived in Zug as its year-long tour through central Switzerland prior to the Winter World University Games nears its final destination.
After stopping off in Lucerne, Nidwalden, Obwalden, Uri and Schwyz, it is now the turn of the Canton of Zug to host the prestigious symbol of the FISU World Winter University Games.
Last Friday (August 21), the flag was handed over by representatives of the Canton of Schwyz to the Cantonal Councillor of Zug and Minster of Sport Martin Pfister.

Twelve men’s and eight women’s teams will compete for medals.
