#MascotMonday is back for 2021 University Edition!

FISU’s #MascotMonday is back after an exciting FISU World University Games edition in 2020, with Taipei 2017 Summer Universiade mascot, Bravo the Bear winning as the crowd favourite. We’ve amped things up and are putting university mascots head to head in the same format, running from 19 April- 7 June, where each Monday you’ll be able to cast your vote for your favourite mascot.

 

The tournament is simple: the university mascot with the most votes goes on to the next round to the semi-finals and finals if successful. We encourage you to follow us, vote and spread the word for your country and university.

 

Voting will happen on our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter pages every Monday, starting on 19 April!

An alligator, Bishop’s University decided to use a clever play on words for The Gaiter. The term ‘Gaiter’ was historically an article of clothing that covered a person’s shoes and lower legs, but who were they worn by? Bishops—hence, ‘The Gaiter’ was born!
