The Sports Department at Sofia University was founded in 1949. Actually the Sports programme has considerably broadened and has been enriched with a new variety of training fields (basketball, volleyball, tennis, fencing), as well as several popular sports (football, judo and skiing). As a result of the new tendencies in sport, the interest shown by the students, and the increasing enrolment of students, new disciplines were introduced, such as: aerobics, callanetics, body-building, sailing, tourism, sport climbing, table tennis, jogging, ballroom dancing, rowing, arching etc.
In 1984, the Centre of Kinesitherapy was set up to promote special therapeutic programmes using the methods of physiotherapy for the students, professors and administrative staff of Sofia University.
