Varsity 2014, the launch of Team Southampton
So the time is nearly upon us. Our annual Varsity competition against Pompey is set to take place on Sunday 9th March, with over 25 different sports and 65 fixtures on the day this year promises to be huge. There will be different fixtures taking place at Wide Lane, Jubilee Swimming Pool, Jubilee Sports Hall, Old Sports Hall and the Activities Room. But the day will be about much more than just Varsity. It will also act as the launch of Team Southampton, which is the new banner which all of our competitive clubs will compete under. We will compete in unified team colours for the first time in recent history (Team Southampton will wear Burgundy, Navy and Gold).
It will be a day of firsts. As it will be the first time we will have a formalised set of rules. This year we have agreed on a Varsity Rulebook that outlines the process of running the Varsity Cup so that we avoid 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.
There will also be a series of articles, radio shows and a pre-varsity show which will re-cap what happened last year and look ahead to this years competition. For all information regarding Varsity, join the Team Southampton Varsity group below:
