What they’re saying

See what it means to the players and fans to go head-to-head in one of the biggest rivalries in Britain

Our group had a fabulous reunion to celebrate the 40th anniversary of our Varsity team. We took a box for the 15 of us, with great views of the pitch and an excellent food and beverage package. After the game we caught up with the players and lots of other friends from other year groups in the Varsity Gathering, and even spoke to some of the players we played against from Oxford. It really was the best way to enjoy The Varsity Matches experience.

What a fabulous day! We had top class Oxbridge academics, great networking opportunities and we made excellent contacts. After the matches, in premium seats, we joined the exclusive Varsity Gathering, met the players and rubbed shoulders with former internationals. Exceptionally good value!

I have been going down to the Varsity Matches at Twickenham for the last 5 years with a group of customers and prospects. We have taken a table in the Spirit of Rugby, with seats in the Royal Box, and drinks in the Members’ Lounge. It is a really great day out and exceptional value for money.

About the team

What makes Varsity so special?

GEORGE MESSUM, Men’s Captain OURFC

As the culmination of an entire season filters into a single 80-minute fixture, the shared experiences amongst the squad, and the importance of the day-to-day journey to the Varsity Match, is unrivalled against any other rugby experience I have had.

ELISHA CLARK, Women’s Captain, CURUFC

Watching Coreen Grant score her spectacular try in the 76th minute last year was a great moment. Being on the pitch with the team when the whistle blew was an unbelievable experience.

STEPHEN LEONARD, Men’s Captain, CURUFC

It epitomises the obsessive nature of competitive sport. Players sacrifice more than their time to simply attempt to wear the Light Blue jersey. I have never come across another match that captures the hearts and minds of all who take part, and I doubt I ever will.

FIONNA KENNEDY, Women’s Captain, OURFC

For me the Varsity Match means the opportunity to play exciting rugby with the privilege of representing Oxford, alongside my teammates who have each others’ backs.
