Dear University Sports Association,
The Sports Committee of Boğaziçi University is very proud of inviting you to the 31st Sports Festival (named as “Sports Fest 2011”) which is going to be held between 12th and 15th of May 2011 in Istanbul, Turkey.*
The Annual International Sports Festival has been a long-standing traditional feature of the life and culture at Boğaziçi University. This festival will offer you a competitive sports meeting and also an amazing opportunity to meet sportsmen from all countries and all social backgrounds.
Under the watchful eye of professional referees invited from respective federations, matches in 14 different branches of sports will take place on our school grounds and sports fields also.
Besides these various matches, we will provide you with free entrances to social occasions, parties, live concerts and trips which are organized by Sports Committee.
Please consider this document as an invitation to join our tournament for this year. You will find extra information about registration procedures and general organization at our web site, http://www.busportsfest.com. You can also contact us via fax, mail or telephone.
We would like to see you among us this May in Istanbul. Your participation will not only make the events even more competitive but perhaps most importantly more fun and enjoyable.
Hope to see you in May,
Boğaziçi University Sports Committee
Formerly known as Robert College, the history of the university dates back to 1863, as the first American institution of higher education established outside the USA. Situated on a hill-top overlooking the Bosphorus, the university enjoys a reputation of being one of the most distinguished higher education establishments in Turkey and the Middle East. The university is a member of a network of universities across Europe and the USA with which there is a dynamic student exchange program.
Sports Committee’s history lies its roots back to “The Athletic Association” founded in 1896 at Robert College. This organization was also the first student club to be established in Turkey, setting an example. Sports Committee’s aim, as one of the main parts of social life in Bosphorus University, is to create a sportive environment with our numerous organizations and also to represent our school as good as we can in sports.
For the past 115 years, the Sports Committee has been arranging all the sports events in the university. Binding 800 sportsmen in 23 different branches of sports under its root, this association has also various organizations which are SnowBreak, Field Day, Fall Games, Night Ball, 3 vs. 3 Tournament and Sports Fest.
Field Day, as it was known then, has continued under its new name “Sports Fest”. This, much established and cherished event is probably one of the most significant and symbolic activities for students since it provides a perfect ground for bringing together sportsmen from across the globe in a spirit of competitiveness and friendship.
Many universities, which previously took part in “Sports Fest”, have repeatedly come back for what turns out each spring to be a wonderful opportunity to take part in competitive sports events while striking new friendships.
This festival starts with the opening ceremony on 12th May and lasts for 4 days. On Thursday you will have a boat trip in Bosphorus and visit some historical places (Grand Bazaar, Hagia Sophia Museum, Topkapi Palace) where you can also do shopping. Same day at the evening, there will be an Opening Ceremony. Next day will begin by starting of competitions held in all 14 different branches of sports. Matches will be played in venues across university campus. Sportsmen will have “live concerts”, “Ferry Party” and “Now OR Never Party” after a tiring and competitive day. In order to make sportsmen and coaches have fun and feel relaxed, exhibition games and animations will be provided in the south campus. Food and drinks are free during the tournament for the players.
Our guests will be welcomed at Istanbul Airport by their guides. Having 2 choices of accommodation, you can stay either in the gym which is located in Ucaksavar Campus with other sportsmen or at the Hotel which is at least 4 stared, in double or triple rooms. Due to limited rooms and beds, we would like you to respect deadlines as well.
So just take your suitcase and think about how much fun you’ll have this spring in Istanbul!
We can’t wait to see you in May!
