The U.A. Sports Festival (
In the days before Quirks, sports fans would obsess over the Olympic Games. When powers became apart of the equation, the U.A. Sports Festival became the most watched sporting event. Students from each grade and every course compete among each other in their respective age groups. The event begins with preliminary elimination rounds, those who pass moving up to compete in the main event. Each stage has a teacher as chief referee, with the principal usually overseeing the senior stage.
Once the event concludes, Pro-Heroes from any agency can nominate the students that earned their attention, as an expression of interest in their future potential. However, these nominations can be dropped by the time the student reaches graduation, should the hero lose interest in them.
The competition is held at the Sports Festival Stadium which is located on the school campus. There are several concession stands outside the entrance with signs pointing to each grade's stage.
