The Sports Committee of IIFT has just one goal - To engage and enrich the lives of the student
community through sport.
Despite having one of the most rigorous academic schedules, students ensure that they
participate in all kinds of sports, be it Cricket, Badminton, Basketball, Volleyball, Throwball,
Table Tennis, Chess, Carom, Online Gaming and Poker. The Sports Comm is the first
Point-of-Contact for students with respect to all sport related events, ranging from conducting sports to organizing screenings of games. Sports Comm also 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 ultimate glory in 10 sports. We also see participation from our esteemed alumni who reminisce about their days at IIFT and engage with the students in various sports. The outdoor events will be held at JawaharLal Nehru Stadium, the same place that hosted the Commonwealth Games in 2010.
A fitting farewell to the outgoing senior batch of IIFT as tensions heat up at the final sports brawl between the senior and the junior batch. As the seniors make the most of their last few days of college and step onto the field as an IIFTian for one last time, the Sports Comm bids farewell to them in their special way, with 2 nights of sporting recreation.
Ultimate Warriors League (UWL) - the annual sports extravaganza at IIFT which equally entertains business as well as sports enthusiasts. A 10-day long event when sport takes center stage at IIFT. UWL is a franchise-based tournament, with potential owners bidding for teams and then the 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.
Inter- College Participation
These intra IIFT sports events help students hone their individual skills and the ability to play as a team, something that is of monumental importance 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 etc.
