On September 22nd, the Executive Committee of the Chengdu 2021 FISU World University Games (WUG), together with the Chengdu Branch of Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC), officially launched a co-branded debit card (WUG Card). From now on, the public can apply for the WUG card through all ICBC branches in Chengdu.
The first batch of 50,000 WUG Cards have been issued. Besides for the ordinary financial functions such as deposit, withdrawal, transfer, mobile banking and financial management, these cards also have collection value. In addition, the holders can enjoy discount on the purchase of the Games' official licensed products with the cards. The cards adopted the key visual design picture of the Games on the front side, showing the power of fearless young people. The design uses gradient strips to show upbeat, fashionable, and colorful life in Chengdu and vibrant youth of college students. Representative elements and iconic buildings of Chengdu, such as the Wangjiang Pavilion, West Pearl Tower, and Global Center, at the background epitomize the unique charm of the ancient city.
On January 22nd, 2020, ICBC signed a contract with the Executive Committee to become the first official partner of the Games. At present, ICBC is devoting every effort to provide all-round and comprehensive financial services for the WUG.
