CSIT World Sports Games Fair Play Policy

Fair Play is very important to CSIT. It reflects the real spirit of sports and is actually close to the aims of CSIT.
At the World Sports Games of 2017 will be the official launch of the CSIT Fair Play – activities, which are implemented more detailed in the CSIT championships regulations of each sport.
Besides the “Green Card” – visible in competitions and games – the Fair Play subject will also be visual and promoted at hotels, sports venues, websites and brochures.
Finally Fair Play will get full attention at the closing ceremony, where teams – male and female athletes – with the highest Fair Play – coefficient will be awarded solemnly.

What is Fair Play?

Fair play is a complex concept that comprises and embodies a number of fundamental values that are not only integral to sport, but relevant in everyday life.
By implementing Fair Play – philosophy into CSIT World Sports Games and other championships, CSIT strives to more:
