This weekend will see the return of our annual Varsity competition against Portsmouth University. Taking place on Sunday 9 March, this fun event includes over 25 different sports and 65 fixtures on the day – making it our biggest event yet!
On the day there will be a variety of different fixtures taking place at Wide Lane, Jubilee Swimming Pool, Jubilee Sports Hall, Old Sports Hall and the Activities Room.
In addition to all the sporting fun, this year’s varsity will also include the launch of Team Southampton (#TeamSouthampton) Team Southampton refers to the new banner which all of our competitive clubs will compete under.
For the first time in recent history we will all compete in unified team colours (Team Southampton will wear Burgundy, Navy and Gold).
What’s more this will be the first year there will be a formalised set of rules known as the Varsity Rulebook. This outlines the process of running the Varsity Cup – avoiding some of the issues that were encountered last year. For example, all sports that take place before Varsity Sunday will be included in a score before the day, once this score is agreed no retrospective action can be taken to include a score.
