Swansea University v Cardiff University
Quite simply it’s one of the biggest student sports events in the country and second only to Oxford v Cambridge in terms of participation and support.
What started nearly twenty years ago as a rugby match between Swansea University and Cardiff University has grown beyond recognition and is now a chance for students at both universities to compete against their rivals in their chosen sports and we backing the Swansea Green & White Army this year!
2015 will see 37 teams taking part in a massive day of sport – the culmination and highlight of a hectic sports year for the students. BUCS points and finals go out of the window because for both the players and the huge number of spectators its bragging rights and pride that are at stake.
For the first time in five years the Welsh Varsity is being played in Swansea and the home sides will be backed by a huge number of fans as exams and coursework are put on hold.
The Swansea teams, in their specially designed Samurai kits, will be looking to close the gap on their big rivals before the finale of the day, the men’s rugby match played in front of more than 20,000 fans at the city’s Liberty Stadium.
For Samurai it’s our first taste of the Welsh Varsity and we’re getting behind the teams on the day, you’ll notice our website, Facebook and Twitter pages turning green in the build up and we’ll bring you live updates and pictures throughout the day as the action gets underway from 10am with Badminton, Netball, Sailing, Swimming, Tae Kwon-do and Tennis starting the action.
