2019 Cup of China ISU Figure Skating  
8 Nov2019
With all the world-class top figure skaters to compete, Cup of China will be opened in Chongqing from November 8th to 10th 2019.

The Cup of China is the third of the six competitions of the World Figure Skating Grand Prix sponsored by the International Skating Federation (ISU).

The event was held in China in 2003 and has been held for 15 consecutive years. During this period, the world's top players, including Yu Sheng and Jin Boyang, have participated.

This makes Chongqing the fifth city after Beijing, Nanjing, Harbin and Shanghai, for ISU's China Cup. It is also the westernmost and southernmost city that China Cup has visited. With about 590 million visitors in 2018 and mostly domestic tourists, Chongqing is the city that ISU and figure skating want to develop their new enthusiasts.

Rekkonen, Vice President of the International Federation of Skating, and Shen Xue, President of the Chinese Figure Skating Association, have praised the quality of the Chongqing HuaXi stadium.

Saying that the space of the stadium can accommodate all the things needed for the games. Raikkonen said that for figure skating competitions, Chongqing has a very good venue. Alexander Kogan, secretary-general of the Russian Figure Skating Association, said, "If it is organized properly, it will be a very successful event."

At the same time, Raikkonen also warned that the fugue skating events still need to improve experiences, "the International Skating Federation has maintained its concern and sustained support for this competition."

According to the plan, the International Skating Federation will come to China again in May to assist the venues and organizing committee of the China Cup of the World Figure Skating Grand Prix in 2019.

"It's a big and wonderful competition. The International Skating Federation hopes to to attract more friends from all walks of life to pay attention to the skating events." Marie Landemark, director of the International Skating Federation, said.

The HuaXi stadium complex is the top quality entertainment  and sports complex in China and located at the subway station YuDong on line 3.
