In 2010, UEL were ranked 124th in the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) league – the National Governing Body for University Sport. With only a handful of teams and no medallists, UELSports was created.

Two years later we won the BUCS Most Improved University for Sports, increasing our ranking by 48 positions – a remarkable achievement.

In 2014, we finished in the top 50 universities in the UK for sport – an unparalled rise. UEL is the most improved university for sport in the UK over the past six years. From 0 to 24 medallists and 32 points to 720.5, we believe this is only the starting point. You can help continue our rise and leave your legacy by playing sport at UEL.
