2019 Winter Deaflympics Update

The International Committee of Sports for the Deaf (ICSD) wishes to inform you that we continue to work with FSSI (Federazione Sport Sordi Italia) closely about the 2019 Winter Deaflympics in Italy.

On 14 June 2018, they had a meeting of the FSSI Board where all members have made the unanimous decision - to support a host to 2019 Winter Deaflympics. They plan to hold Deaflympics in the north of Italy - 150 kilometers from Milan in the middle of December 2019. ICSD has decided to grant them a delay until June 30 that they have worked with the Government of the country and then ICSD can officially begin work with ICSD members.
