“A sound mind in a sound body” ,  was the key phrase for Sports Committee. The association traces its roots to a society formed in 1896 by sportsmen in the college called Athletics Associations. These athletes brought the concept of “organization”  to student groups by making the first inter-college athleticism festival in Turkey, Field Day, real. Other than that Athletics Associations generally dealt with the sports branches of the college and became the bridge between the teams and the school throughout its existence. Sportsmanship Brotherhood, on the other hand, is a kind of fraternity which is based on a rough hierarchy yet, not drifted apart from sports as seen by the title. However, with the spectacular events they organized they were recognized by the college.

Members of Sportsmanship Brotherhood were bounded strongly in the means of companionship. This way, there were two independent student groups interested in college sports. Both were dedicated, nonprofit and voluntary organizations. While Sportsmanship Brotherhood was handling the spirit of brotherhood in the group, Athletics Association was concentrated on the amateur soul of organizations in the college. After this long co-existence , Sportsmanship Brotherhood and Athletic Association transformed into Sports Committee as we know, which now provides a positive sports environment successfully for the college.


At Boğaziçi University, Sports Committee has many other missions other than popularizing the concept of sports and the vast benefits of it. All 23 branches of sports are under the control of Sports Committee, we provide the communication among those branches and the administration. For Sports Committee the amateur soul means more than anything.  Hence, we organize amateur tournaments twice a year where any student-not necessarily a sportsmen -can find an appropriate sports for himself. In our opinion, every student in Boğaziçi University deserves to taste sports.
