Notts Varsity

Varsity 2018!


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.

As well as firm favourites such as Ice Hockey, Football and Basketball, we have added new two new Super Wednesday events which will showcase even more sport across both university campuses.  By attending the Nottingham Varsity series as a spectator, player, official, volunteer or staff member you are agreeing to abide by the Varsity Oath.


Changes to the series

We are very much looking forward to celebrating the sporting achievements of our students at this year’s Varsity series. Please note that we have implemented a number of changes to the 2018 series compared to previous years:

  • This year there will be no season tickets available. Each event has its own individual ticket
  • Tickets for all events will be available to purchase in advance from this website (with the exception of Super Wednesday events, which are free to attend and do not require tickets)
  • On the door ticket sales are not guaranteed but will be available providing the venue is not at capacity from advance online sales
  • Alcohol restrictions have been put in place for some events. See individual event descriptions before buying tickets for specific details.
  • Spectating at Football is limited to invited guests & club members only. There will be no tickets available on general sale.

We recommend buying tickets for the events you wish to attend as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Tickets are available from this website from 12pm Monday 12th March.

We look forward to seeing you support your team in the true sporting spirit of the Varsity series.


Varsity Oath

Varsity is a platform for the celebration of student sport within Nottingham, and I am proud to represent my team, university and city, in this historic competition.

In the name of all competitors and spectators, I pledge to uphold the true spirit of sportsmanship. To respect our opponents and the facilities and communities in which the competition takes place.

We will respect everyone, regardless of our differences. We will give everything for our teammates, abiding by the rules which govern our sport and the overall series.

We win together, we lose together, for the glory of sport.

May the best team win.
