ⓘ 1939 International University Games (Vienna)

An International University Games was an international multi-sport event held between 20–27 August 1939 in Vienna, German Reich, which had originally been scheduled as the official 1939 staging of the Summer International University Games awarded to Vienna by the Confederation Internationale des Etudiants in January 1938, prior to Austrias absorption into Nazi Germany by the Anschluss. The National Socialist German Students League withdrew from the CIE in May 1939, and the CIE at short notice moved its version of the 1939 International University Games to Monte Carlo.

The formal opening was by Bernhard Rust, the Reich Minister of Science, Education and Culture, on 20 August in the Prater Stadium, the main venue of the games. The NSDStB invited many nations to the Vienna games, but most entrants were nations affiliated with the Axis powers. The following countries were reported to have participated in the games: Kingdom of Bulgaria, Estonia, Finland, German Reich, Kingdom of Hungary, Kingdom of Italy, Empire of Japan, Peru, Slovak Republic, Spanish State, Union of South Africa, Sweden, and Kingdom of Yugoslavia. The International Institute of Intellectual Cooperation stated in 1940, "The results of the Monaco Games were much superior to those of the Vienna Games."
