Universiade Flame Lighting Ceremony

July 13, 2012 — Sorbonne, Paris

The 27th Summer Universiade Flame Kindling Ceremony will take place in Paris-Sorbonne University, one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in Europe, which is quite symbolic as Paris hosted the first ‘World Student Games’ in 1923. The Kazan 2013 Torch Relay is expected to be the most large-scale and long-running event in the history of international university sports, as it will travel across five continents of the world.
