Eleven years ago the American Football team “AUBG Griffins” decided to liven up their practices by organizing challenges among the team players. The gained popularity turned those challenges into one of the most anticipated events during the spring semester, and the idea of the AUBG Olympics club was born.

Today, the club organizes the only all-university sports event, which includes 15 disciplines, played in a competitive atmosphere. The event opens with an on-campus celebration that involves the whole AUBG community and displays various talents and spectacle to recreate the university spirit and to raise attention for the upcoming local Olympiad.

During the games, there are also refreshments and good music complementing the excitement on the field. The all-day event has grown to attract over 800 people from AUBG, including participants and spectators, and is held at the Porter Baseball Filed, Bachinovo Park, Blagoevgrad. There are also five to six sports challenges, organized by the club throughout the school year. As the biggest club in the university and as one of the most influential and respected student organizations at the university, AUBG Olympics abides by the principles of passion, ambition and diligence.
