The Abu Dhabi Inter-University Sports League (ADISL) is the result of the collaborative efforts of its member institutions and their vision to foster sports competition and cooperation among Abu Dhabi universities. Members of the ADISL are committed to academic excellence and student engagement as critical factors in student learning and success. The members also acknowledge that their sports programs are an integral part of the campus experience and offer significant opportunities for self-discovery, commitment and leadership development.

The ADISL exists to provide a framework for competition where the playing field is level, the rules of the competition are fair, teams have compatible values, and one’s opponents are respected. It is the expectation that all coaches, administrators, athletes and spectators adhere to sportsmanship ideals and reflect positively on the member institutions and the ADISL in all situations and interactions.

As the ADISL grows, it will continue to offer a wide range of sports and promote participation for both women and men. All sports sponsored by the ADISL are valued equally and the ADISL will strive to ensure that all individuals have equal opportunities for sports participation.
