International Day of University Sport is a worldwide special event taking place each year on September 20th. It was initiated by International University Sports Federation (FISU), which proposed to UNESCO to internationally recognize a day dedicated to university sport. The proposal was endorsed by UNESCO’s Member States at the 38th session of the General Conference in Paris in November 2015. In Ukraine, universities organize a series of athletics events to mark this date.
