Does your higher education institution celebrate the International Day of University Sport?


The joy of student sports will soon fill campuses around the world when the International Day of University Sport (IDUS) is celebrated on Friday 20 September 2019. The IDUS day aims to raise awareness of the importance of university sports for the well-being of higher education students around the world, and to gather students to community-enhancing events during the day.

This fourth celebration of student sports will also be visible at Finnish higher education institutions as various sports events. The organisers include both student unions, university sport services and student sports clubs and associations.

IDUS is organised by the International University Sports Federation FISU and protected by Unesco, that is the United Nations (UN) Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation. FISU will be coordinating the day’s events internationally. In Finland, the IDUS day is coordinated by the Finnish Student Sports Federation (OLL). OLL is a member of FISU.


You can follow the day’s events on social media using the hashtag #LetsIDUS.
