Each year we witness our Athletic Union take on a rival institution's sports teams. It all began with a Tri-Varsity against Teesside and York St Johns, we then went to take the University of York and more recently Lincoln in our annual Varsity. We have won the trophy for 3 years running and wish to continue on beating one of our closest rivals. This year see our Varsity take place in Lincoln on the 26th February.
Competing in the annual Varsity tournament allows the majority of our teams to represent our Athletic Union and demonstrate our talent in a combined effort which hopefully wins us the cup for the third year running! It is a day to come together and support each other in the variety of sports that we offer. Naturally we plan to finish the day with a night out in Asylum to celebrate. Anyone is welcome so don’t miss out on the fantastic atmosphere!
Trophy presentation is the final time in the academic year that the whole AU comes together to cheer on the best and most dedicated athletes.
Look out for celebrities and local stars giving out trophies on the night where we have over 50 trophies to hand out!
