Yuri Lapshin, Chairman of the Krasnoyarsk Territory Government, reiterated that, according to FISU, Krasnoyarsk Winter Universiade was the best in the history of Universiades, and thanks to the applied visa-free entry by e-form technology, a record number of countries visited the Winter Universiade 2019.
“We had a lot of records set, including the one in the number of sold tickets, which exceeded 250 thousand," Yuri Lapshin said. "The stands were completely filled, the load on the network and equipment was as high. Still, we did not have any failures, there were no complaints, people freely watched sports events, shared emotions and photos in networks. This created a favourable background not only for Krasnoyarsk, but also for the country as a whole. We have demonstrated that even distant Siberia is able to provide modern advanced services.”
