The League in 2016:

Hosted by Huaqiao University in Xiamen in China

October 21 to 23

 

A total of 32 teams - 16 men and 16 women - from 23 countries competed for the medals. When the dust settled on the men’s side, McGill University from Canada beat France's University of Bordeaux. This would be the second League title for Canada as Université du Québec à Montréal also beat Bordeaux in the 2015 finals.

In the women’s final, another Canadian team, the University of Regina, took the lead early, but the Lithuanian Sports University stormed back. With an efficient offense, Lithuanian Sports University reached the top of the podium by winning 21-14.

The League also featured shoot-out and dunk contests, much to the delight of both the crowd and competitors.

The competition had an impressive reach. CCTV broadcast the games daily, while Eurosport also covered the event. FISU TV also live streamed all the games and contests to a global audience.
