Varsity

Every year, Edge Hill University and University of Central Lancashire sports teams compete in an Annual Varsity competition. Varsity is one eagerly awaited massive day of sport with fixtures including Football, Hockey, Rugby, Basketball and Netball. Each fixture contributes towards the Varsity total with the University with the most points taking home the trophy.

For the last three years, we have returned as Varsity champions with a huge effort from our teams against strong competition from UCLan.

This year, we travel to UCLan on Wednesday 27 March 2019 looking to retain the trophy. The majority of fixtures will be played at either Sir Tom Finney Sports Centre and the UCLan Sports Arena, which is accessible by the free shuttle bus from outside the UCLan Students’ Union. Our swimming team will also be competing at West View Leisure Centre.

Team Captains will be required to collect their team’s bus tickets from Edge Hill Sport reception from 10.00am. Buses will be departing at 10.30am from Edge Hill Sport.
