Team Leicester looking for Varsity victory against DMU

Leicester sports teams will once again face sporting rivals De Montfort University in the biggest event in their sporting calendar, Varsity, which kicks off on Thursday 16 March.

Team Leicester is hoping to repeat the success of last year’s season, which saw them triumph with an almighty score of 35 to DMU’s 12.

In addition, this year the Vice-Chancellors of both universities will go head-to-head captaining their staff teams for a football duel on Friday 17 March from 7.30pm at Beaumont Park. The event, hosted by DMU, has been organised as part of their #Loveinternational campaign in support of international staff and students of both universities.

Varsity will run until Wednesday 22 March where the games will culminate with two huge rugby fixtures at the home of the Leicester Tigers, Welford Road stadium.
