Sussex Varsity is back for 2019

The full fixture lineup has been released


Sussex and Brighton Universities have confirmed that they will host the return of Varsity from March 6th 2019, following the University of Sussex voting in favour of reinstating the fixture in April last year.

A series of competitive Football, Ultimate Frisbee, Badminton, Volleyball, Netball, Rugby, Basketball, American Football, Hockey and Lacrosse events will take place across the month of March.

The tickets, which will cost £2, will be made available to club members first on Monday February 4th and will then be made available for all other students from Monday February 11th.

After being cancelled last year due to the outbreak of violence during the Men's Rugby event in 2017, both universities have spent the past year getting ready to welcome a more supported range of events spread over the course of a few weeks.
