GOMBAK, 17 October 2018: The Ultimate Frisbee League that took place for the first time last Saturday (13 October) at Padang Ali in campus here was indeed a success.
Organised by ICTRex from Kulliyyah of Information and Communication Technology (KICT), the event was their first attempt for their annual Kulliyyah sports carnival.
Last year, futsal was offered and it was a success due to many participants registering for the matches. This year, ICTRex wanted to try something new by organising a Frisbee League which have also attracted many people interested to join in.
Asked why frisbee was chosen as the game, the event’s programme manager, Aliff Haikal bin Khairul responded: “The Ulti Mustangs want to promote an awareness and ability to appreciate the aesthetic qualities of frisbee itself.”
He added, “We want to unite IIUM community through sporting events and to use sports as a means to encourage competitiveness and sportsmanship among them.”
The league was divided into two categories – brothers and sisters. It was open to the public as well.***
