MASUM 2015

Wednesday, 29/7/2015

Today will be the first day for MASUM 2015. What is MASUM. In English, MASUM is Malaysian Universities Sports Council. In Bahasa Malaysia, MASUM stands for Majlis Sukan Universiti Malaysia. 

A bit history on MASUM. It began in 1975 after the first sports carnival among the staffs of Malaysian Universities was held a year earlier. In early years, the sports inter universities were held ad hoc. In 1981, GUM was created. The name changed to MASUIPTIM two years later when finally it became MASUM in 1985. Today, there are 20 local universities which are the members of MASUM.

This year, MASUM is hosted by UTM, Johor Baharu.

GiLoCatur is very glad since chess is one of the sports in the competition. The first round will kick off in about one hour from now. GiLoCatur will follow MASUM 2015 especially chess because GiLoCatur's eldest son, Fikri, will be participating. Fikri will represent UiTM.
