Varsity 2018

Please note: Following the recent unexpected weather, the Varsity rugby match held at Leicester Tigers Welford Road has been postponed until Monday 20 April 2018. All tickets for the original fixture will be valid for the new date. The full statement from Leicester Tigers is available on their website.

Each year, the annual Varsity sporting contest sees students from Leicester and DMU compete in a wide range of sports, including football, netball, basketball, tennis, badminton, squash, cricket, swimming, hockey, American football and cycling.

The 2018 Varsity season runs from Wednesday 7 March through to Wednesday 14 March with events at a wide range of venues across the city including Leicester Arena and Welford Road Stadium, home of the Leicester Tigers.

We have an unbroken record of success and hope to emerge triumphant once again. So come along to as many events as you can and cheer on Team Leicester as we once again square up against DMU.
