Ever since 1949, the International University Sports Federation (FISU) has been the key driver of university sport around the world. FISU offers opportunity and inspiration to all university students to play sport, in perfect synchronization with their education.
At the heart of the university sports movement lie FISU’s flagship sports events – the FISU World University Games, FISU World University Championships, and the FISU University World Cups. Across these multiple events, the FISU sports programme covers more than 60 sports.
In addition to international sports competitions, FISU also stages educational events and programmes that offer students opportunities for individual development, networking, exchange of ideas and collaborative learning – such as the FISU World Forum and FISU Volunteer Leaders Academy, among others.
