The International Day of University Sport to make 4th annual celebration around the world

It’s back! The annual International Day of University Sport (IDUS) is back on 20th September 2019. Officially proclaimed by UNESCO, IDUS 2018 attracted 97 FISU members from 5 Continental University Sports Federations and 4 Organising Committees who promoted and celebrated IDUS.


FISU expects nothing less from IDUS 2019- #LetsIDUS will be back in action on social media where NUSFs, CUSFs and University communities can use this hashtag to promote the day with other members, partners and of course university communities.


To help you put together your own International Day of University Sport celebration plan, we have the IDUS Guidelines available in four FISU official languages with other IDUS related information on FISU webpage.


Organised every year since 2016, IDUS aims to create a link between universities and local communities through sport, physical activity and healthy living. In previous years, university communities in Norway, Australia and Switzerland held Oslo in Motion, Monash in Motion and Lausanne in motion respectively, held community wide events promoting university sport with free activities for the public. These activities included dance classes, fitness classes, rock climbing, stand up paddle boarding and much more from many other FISU members as well!


Compared to previous years, IDUS 2018 saw a major increase in participation from its members with over half of them celebrating IDUS in one way or another. The goal for this year is to get even more involvement from FISU members, with the hopes of bringing even more awareness to the University Sport Movement as a whole.
