GSF to set up Sports University in Bangladesh


Dhaka – The Global Sports Federation (GSF) with the support of United Nations Office on Sports for Development and Peace (UNOSDP) will establish an International Sports University in Bangladesh.The first-ever sports university will be set up in Wazirpur upazila of Barisal district as part of GSF’s initiative to establish nine International Sports Universities in different countries.The GSF has also finalised sites for the universities in Anand of Gujarat (India), Bloemfontein, Free State (South Africa) and Corfu (Greece) while other sites will be finalised soon, said GSF President Dr Enayet Karim.The main target of establishing the universities is to generate world-class sports managers, coaches, athletes, policymakers and physiologists.Dr Enayet Karim said, “We provide technical support, planning and consultancy for the promotion of sports all over the world.”The GSF organised tournaments of different games worldwide to boost the sports. The youth of the world are the golden assets but they are derailing due to proper guidance and very limited access to any productive activity.The GSF gives them the opportunity to engage in sports in boundary and over the boundary for bringing peace and prosperity in the society.Presently, five out of 12 top-ranking cricket playing nations are from South Asia. These are Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Football, women cricket, cricket for blind and disabled people, Kabaddi, and many Olympic recognised games are frequently played in Asia.UNB agency
