Naples, August 9 - The contract for the first ship
that will provide accommodation for some of the athletes taking
part in the 2019 Summer Universiade in Naples will be signed on
Thursday.
The ship, the MSC Lirica, can hold up to around 2,000
passengers.
The announcement was made in a statement by Campania regional
governor Vincenzo De Luca.
The ship will be the first of the two planned to be
officialized as lodgings for some of the athletes' village that
will be set up in Naples' Stazione Marittima.
The focus was on the sports themselves at the top-level
meeting held on Wednesday in the regional government
headquarters.
The individual sports will be held in Naples except for the
fencing event, which is expected to be held in Salerno, while
sports facilities located across the entire Campania region will
be used for team sports.
The plan for interventions was approved at the meeting. As
concerns infrastructure, the overall investment is 127,107,177
euros for 57 sports facilities including 36 for competitions and
21 for training.
In particular, for the San Paolo stadium - in addition to the
sums allocated for the track, lighting and audio/video - funds
that had initially been set aside for the Collana stadium (which
will no longer be used for the Universiade) will now be used
after the entrusting of the facilities to private investors.
An additional 1,170,000 will go to the San Paolo stadium for
works on toilet and shower facilities and 14,402,888.06 for
works to bring it into compliance with regulations.
On goods and services for the Universiade, the amount is
129,792,823.
The main accreditation center will be set up in the
Capodichino airport, while the Media Press Center will be
located in the Mostra d'Oltremare exhibition grounds.
Three hubs will be used for the athletes' village: Naples,
Salerno and Caserta, with the use of two cruise ships for an
overall 4,000 places, hotel lodgings for 2,000 and university
dorms for another 2,000
Guidelines for the recruitment of about 8,000 volunteers were
also approved. The volunteers will be involved in activities
before, during and after the Universiade and will contribute to
the overall success of the Games. (ANSAmed).
