It was held at the Sports Complex Hall, Gambang Campus on March 29, 2019.
The tournament was a platform to produce talented athletes.
According to the Tournament’s Director, Haizad Hashim, event such as this could help promote sports among students and encourage them to get involve in sporting activities.
“Students will be more active, healthy, vibrant, dynamic, competent and competitive. They also got to foster good ties and build up friendship and team spirit.
“These activities could help instil a sense of identity in them, too.
“There were three games – football, netball and futsal and we received participations from all faculties in the university. For the first time, we received participations from the international students who went by the name of International-Lions,” he said.
The tournament was officially opened by Mohd Aznorizamin Ismail, who’s performing the duties as the Sports and Culture Centre Director.
