The Sports and Recreation Centre will be organising their 4th lnter Faculty Games (IFG) 2020 in December, dedicated to all Taylorians. This annual event is spearheaded by the newly founded Taylor’s Sports Ambassadors (TSA). The objective of this event is to provide safe competitive sports engagement opportunities for Taylorians to partake in virtual sports representing their faculties as well as to increase the mental health and student engagement among Taylorians.
The theme for IFG 2020 is environmental sustainability in the view of the sustainable Development Goals; Good health & well being, Gender equality and Life on land. During these tough times, we would like to provide Taylorians a platform to compete in friendly games while ensuring equality throughout the event. To protect, restore and promote sustainable use of the ecosystem, extra measures are taken to promote and adopt sustainability by going paperless and opting for more environment-friendly activities and giveaways.
Moreover, IFG 2020 will be very unique from the previous editions as it is completely a virtual event and live streamed for the public to watch. The online games offered are Valorant, Mobile Legends and International Chess in 3 categories catered to Beginners, Intermediate and advanced players. Participants must be a current Taylor's student and can only register once. Note that participants are selected on a first-come first-serve basis. Medals will be awarded to the top 3 winners of each sport. Furthermore, the award for Most Valuable Player (MVP) will be given for team events. MVPs will be given a trophy and Taylor’s UniGym quarterly membership package worth RM180. All participants are eligible to claim SHINE points too. Finally, all participants will receive an event t-shirt and an e-certificate.
For those who like to watch esports tournaments, we LIVE stream IFG 2020 Esports Tournaments. To get more information and updates regarding Inter Faculty Games 2020, check out our social media pages stated below.
