Rector Cup XXIX : “Sports for UNJ is Always Number One”
Public Relations of UNJ (9/10/2019) – The Rector Cup XXIX (the 29th) was officially opened by the Acting Rector of UNJ, Prof. Intan Ahmad, on Monday, September 9, 2019 at the yard of UNJ Library, Campus A UNJ. Attended the ceremony were the Vice Rectors, Deans, Advisors, as well as the contingent of Rector Cup XXIX.
Prof. Intan Ahmad in his remarks gave appreciation to the Advisors and Sport Student Activity Unit (UKO) of UNJ for having consistently held this Rector Cup Tournament up to this 29th year. “Doing sport has always been number one for UNJ. It might not be enough for students to only study during their learning period in the university. They somehow need to join extracurricular activities; one of them may be joining sport.” He added. He further said that plays sports can foster sense of sportsmanship and make us understand that no pain, no gain.
He hoped that this event was supposed to involve not only a competition, but also to develop brotherhood among the students for sport is not only a competition but also a recreation. In his last words, Prof. Intan Ahmad suggested the students not only do sport in the young age, but also get used to it onwards until in the old age.
Rector Cup XXIX is organizing 9 sports branches for competition this year. What seems to be different this year from the previous years is that it includes Mobile Legends as a new branch. The Rector Cup Tournament will be held from September 9 to 17, 2019. Participants involved are contingents coming from 8 faculties of UNJ in addition to lecturers and staff of UNJ.
