Almaty has no more competitors left in its bid to host the Winter Universiade-2017, reports citing head of Kazakhstan student sport union Kairat Zakiryanov.

Italian Trentino was also bidding to host the contest, but withdrew because of the economic situation. November 29 Kazakhstan delegation will present Almaty in Brussels. That is when the decision will be made, but considering that Almaty is the only bidder now the judges will most likely support it.

In October English reported that International University Sport Federation's (FISU) Commission was satisfied with preparations made by Almaty authorities for the Winter Universiade-2017. The commission visited the sports facilities and met with Kazakhstan Prime-Minister Karim Massimov who promised FISU that that if Kazakhstan wins the right to host the competition, it would be the best Universiade in the history of its existence.
