On 20th September 2021, the International Day of University Sport will be celebrated around the world for the 6th time.


Officially proclaimed by the United Nations Education, Science and Culture Organisation, the day supports the development of links between universities and their local communities through sport.


The event creates a debate on university sport and acts as a platform to exchange ideas, best practices, challenges and opportunities within and through university sport worldwide.


It also offers an opportunity to share knowledge on key issues relating to the development of sport in cooperation with the university sports movement worldwide, and to improve awareness of the importance of sport in educational institutions.


More information on how to set up your own event on the day is available on the event website.
