As the important promotion activities of the Chengdu 2021 FISU World University Games, a series of the "Feel Chengdu 2021" events, themed "Love Chengdu, Embrace the Games", were launched since October 20, 2020. Up to now, WUG themed events have already been held in various schools, including Chengdu No.7 Middle School, Chengdu NO.7 High School (Linyin Campus), Chengdu NO.7 High School (High-tech Campus) and Paotongshu Primary School and so on.

"It will celebrate its 61st birthday this year, but it is very 'young'. It has already seen more than 150,000 participations in history. It is a large international multi-sport event, it's -- FISU World University Games. It will come to Chengdu next year ......" During the event, a speaker introduced the Games and used a set of data of the Games to show how important FISU WUG means to Chengdu and China. At the same time, the slogan, emblem, mascot, as well as venues of the Games were introduced in detail.
The event invited several sports stars, including Yin Jing, gold medal winner of men's 110m hurdles at the 25th Universiade in Belgrade, Jiang Wenwen & Jiang Tingting, world champions of synchronized swimming, and Zhang Shan, world champion of skeet shooting, to share their inspiring stories with children, and motivate them to chase their dreams bravely.

The athletes speakers also encouraged children to learn from sports model like Yao Ming, Liu Xiang, Guo Jingjing, and Chinese women's volleyball team, who began their sports career at the Universiades and started to shine afterwards. The Chinese women's volleyball team is especially emphasized for their spirit, which is already a symbol of brave struggling and continuous fighting in Chinese people's heart. The Chinese women's volleyball team won the championship at the Romania 1981 Universiade, and continued to take a total of six Universiade championships, including three consecutive ones in 1999, 2001 and 2003. It's hoped that children, inspired from their stories and encouragement talks, can face and overcome difficulties in their lives, becoming "Today's Stars, Tomorrow's Leaders (the FISU motto)" .
