About the series

Every year, Nottingham becomes the stage for some of the greatest sporting scenes ever to grace this fine country. The annual Nottingham Varsity Series sees the Trent Army face Nottingham Uni in a variety of sporting events at a number of Nottingham's most prestigious sporting venues.

This year’s series has been moved to term 3, allowing it to be condensed into a more focused celebration of sport across both universities. The series runs from 27th April – 5th June and kicks off with Basketball at the Capital FM Arena on Monday 27th April.

As well as firm favourites such as Ice Hockey, Football and Basketball, we have added new sports such as Futsal and Table Tennis to the mix in order to showcase the full array of sporting talent at the two universities.

The series is a great opportunity to get involved in our local friendly rivalry and cheer on the Trent Army to help them be crowned as this year’s champions. Show your support on social media by using one of the hashtag #TrentVarsity
