World Fair Play Day 2022

World Fair Play Day 2022

The World Fair Play Day is celebrated annually on September 7, as a sports initiative designed to promote fair play, ethical values in sport and it serves also as great opportunity for members of Fair Play Movement and beyond to raise awareness and reflect on Fair play in and outside of sport.

World Fair Play Day aims to demonstrate that Fair Play can be promoted through both large-scale operations and simple actions. The aim is to make this Day an authentic celebration of Fair Play as a real component of education in sport, society and life itself.

Through sport and values like fair play, that encompasses respect, friendship, team spirit, fair competition, sport without doping, equality, integrity, solidarity, tolerance, we can contribute to building a peaceful society and ultimately a better world.

European University Sports Association (EUSA) is an official partner of the European Fair Play Movement (EFPM), who is a member of the International Fair Play Committee (IFPC). The values of fair play, equality, ethics, and clean sport without doping and without match-fixing are at the core of EUSA sport and other events. As a recognition for this, EUSA also received a special Fair Play Award by the EFPM in 2014.

To celebrate and commemorate the World Fair Play Day, a special ceremony was held also this year in Brussels, organised by the International Fair Play Committee, the European Fair Play Movement, Panathlon International and Panathlon Wallonie-Bruxelles. This was the third edition since the day was officially celebrated and recognised as such in 2020.

President of the International Fair Play Committee Mr Jeno Kamuti attended this year’s event in Brussels, together with the Presidents of the other three founding organizations - Mr Pierre Zappelli from Panathlon International and Philippe Housiaux from European Fair Play Movement and Panathlon Wallonie-Bruxelles.

Together with other speakers and participants, they shared the main message that fair play is key for a better world not only in sport, but also in general.
