【Abstract】By means of literature review and logic analysis, this paper makes an analysis based on the collection and compilation of more than 120 articles about Xi Jinping’s speeches and discourses on sports work and about the sports exchanges with other countries that have been published since 2013. It discusses the mission and its form of public diplomacy of Chinese students’ sports organizations in the new era, with the intention of contributing to the major-country diplomacy with Chinese characteristics. On the basis of defining the concepts of Chinese students’ sports organizations and public diplomacy, this paper expounds the historic mission of the public diplomacy of Chinese students’ sports organizations in the new era and then puts forward the organizational forms of fulfilling the historic mission. Accordingly, there are three types of organizational forms, “welcoming in,” “going global” and the integration of the two. The “welcoming in” mainly includes holding international sports events, providing training opportunities of seminars and workshops, and inviting foreign students for study and exchanges; the “going global” mainly includes participating in international sports competitions and cultural communication events, getting engaged in the management of international students’ sports organizations and short-term training, studying abroad, and ensuring the success of the Confucius Institutes; and the integration of “welcoming in” and “going global” mainly includes cooperatively running schools, establishing project alliances, hosting sports forums and hosting winter and summer camps.
