The World University Baseball Championship is an under-23 international college baseball competition sponsored by the International University Sports Federation (FISU) and was first held in 2002 in Italy. Until 2013, it was sanctioned by the then-International Baseball Federation (IBAF) and was one of several tournaments considered by the IBAF to be a minor world championship, and as such the results of the tournaments affected the IBAF World Rankings.[1] For its men's world rankings, the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) -- successor to the IBAF -- now uses the results of WBSC's biennial 23U Baseball World Cup (instead of the World University Championship).

History

The 5th World University Baseball Championship was held from July 29 to August 8, 2010 in Tokyo, Japan and was organized by the All Japan University Baseball Federation.[2]
