Highlights Day 1 – 27th Winter Universiade, Granada, Spain
GRANADA – The Second Part of the 27th Winter Universiade can start. The Opening Ceremony of the 2nd part of the 27th Winter Universiade was held on 4 February in the Granada Congress Palace in an electrifying atmosphere. It is rare that an opening ceremony takes place inside and in the presence of a philharmonic orchestra. The Organizing Committee had made this bet with some success. One day prior to the Opening Ceremony that officially starts the second part of the 27th Winter Universiade in Granada, Spain, the men’s ice hockey tournament already began. Kazakhstan and Japan faced-off in the first regulation game of the 2015 Granada Winter Universiade, followed by Korea vs Canada and Russia vs Sweden. Over 25 Kazakhstan fans filed into the Granada Sports Palace to support their men’s ice hockey team during their game against Japan.
