Dear Friends,

We would like to cordially welcome you on behalf of the Organising Committee of the World Fencing Championships 2014 to hospitable Kazan.

We are greatly honoured to host the World Fencing Championships 2014 in Kazan, the capital of the Republic of Tatarstan and a city with a thousand-year history. We believe that this is a well-deserved honour for a city that has been rightly recognised as the Third Capital of the Russian Federation and a major economic, educational and cultural centre.

Kazan has experience in staging numerous major international sporting events at the largest and unique sport venues, including the European U23 Championships 2011 and the 27th Summer Universiade Kazan 2013. It is Kazan that was honourably recognised as a “Sports Capital” of Russia.

In July 2014, the Organising Committee will create all conditions for comfortable stay of athletes and guests, their acquaintance with the city, its ancient as well as modern history.

All the citizens of Russia and the Republic of Tatarstan are looking forward to meeting world’s top rank fencers, eagering to show true Russian hospitality and to provide every participant of the World Fencing Championships 2014 with an excellent level of service!

The Organising Committee has the honour of inviting you to participate in the World Fencing Championships 2014.

Welcome to Kazan!
