Inter-IIT Sports Meet is the most eagerly looked after sports event amongst campus teams, wherein all IITs compete for glory. It comprises of two meets, Inter IIT Main Meet in December and Inter IIT Aquatics Meet. Aquatics Meet is held separately (generally in the first week of October) as part of Inter IIT each year preceding the main meet. Inter IIT is hosted by IITs turn by turn. General Championship is awarded to the teams based on their combined performance in Inter IIT Main Meet and Inter IIT Aquatics meet. IIT Kanpur hosted the Inter IIT 2016 edition. The grandness of the event can be judged by the fact that the teams practice throughout the year to give their best shot in a 10 day tournament.
Format: Each sport carries 10 points for the winners, 6 for the runners up, 4 for the 3rd place and 2 for the 4th place. Total points for a particular IIT are summed up and the total is known as their GC tally. The IIT with maximum GC tally wins the Inter IIT Sports meet, and gets to lift the prestigious GC trophy. The dream of every member of the contingent is to perform to their best of abilities at the prestigious Inter IIT tournament and contribute to bringing the GC home. IIT Kanpur has been winning the overall General Championship for the past three years. We are looking up to #MissionMadras.
