Roses 2017

Get ready for another epic sporting clash when Lancaster’s athletes travel to York in the hope of defending last year’s Roses win. We’d like to see as many Lancaster supporters at the event as possible to cheer our teams to victory, and will be offering a limited number of return travel packages for supporters.


Your team has been allocated a number of seats for competitors. You need to book yours now if you need transport or a coach seat will not be allocated. Once you have booked your seat we will email you a e-ticket with details. Please read and bring it with you on your journey.

Club Member Supporters

If you’re in a club but not competing, we have some spaces allocated by your captains. It’s £15 and means you can travel with the team as a club supporter. Once you have booked we will email you an e-ticket with details. Please read and bring it with you on your journey.

Supporters Packs

If you just love the atmosphere and can’t wait to see us beat York, we have a great deal for you. Book a supporters pack and we’ll get you there and back and give you a bunch of goodies. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Monday March 20 and will be in limited numbers, so sign up quick to be sure of bagging your place. Packs will be collected from the welcome desk in week 1 for everyone who has got in before they sell out.

Pack includes:

  • Travel to York and from York.
  • ‘Crash’ accommodation (lecture theatre floors in York uni).
  • I am Lancaster t-shirt, and other freebies

*Please note Supporters Packs are non-refundable
