A new record was achieved for the FIFA/CIES International University Network Award as by the end of the regulatory deadline CIES had received sixteen projects which will now compete for the twelfth edition of the competition. An international jury will announce the winning work on 24 February 2022.

Sixteen group works will participate in the twelfth edition of the FIFA/CIES International University Network Award 2022. As in 2020, students had to deal with the constraints caused by the continuing global pandemic. Indeed, for most of them, it was almost impossible to meet in the classroom to discuss and develop their project ideas together around a table. Most of the interactions, therefore, took place at a distance via screens. However, these new working methods did not prevent them from presenting varied project proposals. In 2021, the students were particularly interested in themes related to women's football, eSports, new technologies, volunteering, health, stadium management, as well as governance and education for sportsmen and sportswomen.

Created in 2011 on the initiative of the Universidad Católica Argentina, the FIFA/CIES International University Network Award aims to reward original work which further promotes the understanding of sport and also the development of innovative projects that can be implemented at continental, national, regional and local levels.
