About University Sports

Since its founding in 1949, the International University Sports Federation has been the key driver in expanding the role and reach of university sport worldwide. FISU believes that sports values and sports practice are in perfect synergy with the university spirit. FISU offers opportunity and inspiration to students around the world to play sport. The health, wellbeing and experiences that students gain from university sport help them become exemplary leading members of society. Hence, FISU’s motto of ‘Today’s stars, tomorrow’s leaders’. In keeping with this motto, FISU organizes world-class sports and educational events for university students, which promote the pursuit of excellence in mind and body.
