The Directorate was established in July 2011. It comprises four sports facilities; Bustan Sports Center, Bustan Multifunctional Swimming Pool, Moskva Sports Center, and Social and Sports Center on Orenburgsky Trakt.

The Directorate was tasked with centralizing the physical education timetables, working with the University's sports teams, promoting the facilities in local communities to increase external revenue, maintaining and preparing the facilities to hold 2013 Summer Universiade.

The sports centers now work with KFU students and staff as well as with local residents and municipal middle school sports teams.
