International University Sports Federation

Since its founding in 1949, the International University Sports Federation is the key driver to expand the role and reach of university sport around the world. FISU believes that sports values and sports practice work in perfect synchronicity within one’s university studies.

FISU offers opportunity and inspiration to students around the world to play sport. The health, well being, and experiences that students gain from sport help them become active members in our global society.

The FISU World University Championships are single sport competitions that complement and complete the FISU sports programme. They are also held every two years and give various host cities all over the world a chance to host a major international sports event. In 2022, the FISU World University Championships calendar had 22 events on the year’s calendar.
