University of Leicester and De Montfort University have had to jointly make the difficult decision to cancel Varsity 2020.

Neither university wishes to place students and staff at increased possibility of spreading COVID-19. Both universities are saddened that they’ve had to take such difficult decisions but the safety of students and staff is paramount to our activities.

There will not be any Varsity fixtures held, or re-arrangements, including no fixtures being played “behind closed doors”. We ask that students and staff continue to follow institution guidelines on mitigating risks. Students who were due to play in Varsity that have questions about the cancellation of fixtures please contact
