The Sports Committee of IIFT has a clear purpose- To brighten the lives of the student community through sport.
Despite having one of the most gruelling academic framework, students ensure that they participate in a large corpus of sports, be it Futsal, Cricket, Badminton, Basketball, Volleyball, Throwball, Table Tennis, Chess, Carom, Online Gaming and Poker. The Sports Comm prepares the sports budget for an academic year in accordance with the sports budget sanctioned by the institute and subsequently procures all the sports equipment.
The flagship annual inter B-School sporting festival of IIFT, Adrenaline is a 3-day extravaganza held in the month of February. Marking the end of the academic calendar across colleges, the event witnesses participation from 15+ top B-Schools across India with over 500 participants competing for the ultimate glory in 10 sports. We also see participation from our esteemed alumni who participate in various sports reminiscing their days at IIFT.
From this year onward, the outdoor events are being held at Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium, the same place which hosted the Commonwealth Games in 2010.
The final sports fight between the senior and the junior batch, before the seniors mark an end of their journey at IIFT. As the seniors make the most of their last few days of college, the Sports Comm bids farewell to them in their unique way, with 2 nights of sporting fun, one last time on the field of IIFT as an IIFTian.
The sports comm is responsible for conducting the Ultimate Warriors League (UWL) - the annual sports extravaganza at IIFT. A 10-day long event when sport takes centre stage at IIFT. UWL is a franchise-based tournament, with potential owners bidding for teams and then the actual team owners getting to bid for players.
Apart from the sporting angle, UWL also encompasses roles for students in various functions such as Marketing, Finance, Operations, Consulting, IT, and the like. You won’t get a better chance to apply all your Management knowledge in a college event.
We also help the Melange Team (The Cultural Committee of IIFT) in conducting sports events in the Big Fight (an event in which there is a fight for supremacy amongst teams from Section A, B and C respectively).
Inter- College Participation
These intra IIFT sports events help students hone their team coordination and individual skills, something that goes a long way while competing in inter college sports events. We participate in some of the major inter B-school sports events in India organized by IIM Ahmedabad, MDI Gurgaon, IMT Ghaziabad, FMS Delhi and IIM Rohtak respectively.
It is the final sports extravaganza between the senior and the junior batch, before the seniors bid farewell to the college.
