With the BUCS season pretty much in the books it’s time to focus on the annual finale of the UoG season. Like every university season it’s been one with great ups and downs for our SU Sports teams but the buzz around campuses lets you know that Worcester are coming.
The Varsity series is a chance for the University of Gloucestershire to go head to head with the University of Worcester across 19 sports. Gone are the days of this being a bit of fun for our leaving students… This is a battle of the best that each University has to offer.
This year the series proves to be an exciting and revitalized venture with 5 more teams getting involved in the mix. We welcome Cheerleading, Dance, Equestrian, Rowing & Tennis to #TeamGlos.
Although TeamGlos currently sit more than 20 positions above Worcester in the BUCS points table, all that goes out the window once players step into the Varsity arena. Fueled with passion and university pride anything can happen on the day. 6 years adrift from their last Varsity victory we know the desire to lift that trophy burns deep within the Worcester camp.
So UoG I urge you to get behind your fellow students and support them in bringing home the Varsity cup for the 7th year running.
Blue & Blue! Through & Through!

Varsity has always been a bittersweet occasion for Worcester. There's no doubt about the excitement and buzz Varsity brings, and the support for our competitors was top-drawer last time around!
We're confident it will be even bigger and better this time around, especially now our Varsity series is hosting its highest number of events ever! We are delighted to introduce Tennis, Equestrian, Dance and Rowing to the mix, which is a huge testament to these clubs who have worked hard over the previous 12 months raise their profile; it really shows how the sporting agenda is growing year on year at UoW. There have already been some great success stories to date, and confidence is certainly high amongst many of our teams who eager to get out there and perform!
We are privileged to have use of the UoW Arena, a magnificent 2000-seater venue. The Introduction of the Arena alongside the Prince of Wales Stadium means the series now boasts two 600+ capacity venues, another sign of the demand for this epic event!
The 2013 series saw a spirited final-day comeback from #TeamWorc and the series ended 6-8 in UoG's Favour, the closest finish we have witnessed in years...Taking all into account, everything is perfectly poised for a hair-razing, blood-tingling and nail-biting series...we can't wait!!"
