Sports Development Centre
The sports section in IIUM was established in 1983. Since then, sports have become vibrant activities in IIUM. In 1990, the sports activities in IIUM have drastically increased in term of quantity and quality. In 1991, the role of sports section became more demanding when IIUM was indirectly involved with the World University Sports Federation (FISU), Asian University Sports Federation (AUSF) and AseanUniversity Sports Council (AUSC).
The primary purpose of Sports Development Centre (SDC) is to provide opportunities for students and staff to pursue their sports and recreational interest. The focus of SDC programmes are blending and learning new motor skill while coordinating all sports activities, monitor the progress of IIUM sports development and supervise the maintenance of venues and sports facilities of the university.
