Hey everyone, 

We did it! The Varsity Cup has returned home after a victory for Huddersfield in the biggest annual sports competition in the University calendar!

This year over 800 students competed in 27 fixtures over two days of spectacular competition. It was a hard-fought and deserved win, as our finest sportsmen and women stormed to victory against The University of Bradford – taking home the trophy from our rivals.

It all started formally on Tuesday night when hundreds of students packed out the University Sports Hall to watch the Huddersfield Basketball Men’s 1st Team rise to victory in our first fixture against Bradford, 71 – 51!

The intense competition culminated in a head-to-head battle of the two Rugby Union Teams at Lockwood Park where Huddersfield triumphed 23 -17 giving us the points needed to win overall!
