Varsity is back in 2018 with a bigger and even better edition of the sporting event of the year. Expect high drama, tense matches and hopefully lots of action as London Met bid to retain the coveted trophy following last years 14-7 win in the inaugural Varsity.

What is a Varsity?
A Varsity is a sports match against a University over a number of activities and sports.
When and where is Varsity taking place?
The Varsity is taking place between Monday 26th and Wednesday 28th February and we are hosts. Therefore all activities will take place across our Holloway campus and local sport venues.
Who are we competing against?
London Met compete against local rivals SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies)
How does the Varsity work ?
Both Universities organise a series of sports matches and fun activities that all carry one Varsity point. In order to win the Varsity each University must score more team points than the other. Last year was 14-7 across 24 sport and activities!!
Who is eligible to play?
Any current student or member of staff are eligible for selection for any of the sports and activities. Its all completely FREE and everyone involved will get a FREE Varsity T shirt. In addition to last years activities, all students whose matches take place on a Wednesday are permitted to attend their fixtures by the University Senior Management. There is now no excuses to not get involved!!!
