2017 Varsity Match

22nd February 2017

The club is delighted to formally announce this year’s football Varsity fixture, the 133rd Varsity Match. The game will take place on Sunday 19th March 2017, at the Hive Stadium, home of Barnet FC. We are incredibly proud that, for the first time in the history of the fixture, this year’s Varsity Match will be held as a double-header, jointly hosted by the Men's and Women's teams. The Women’s game will kick off at 1pm, with the Men’s match starting at 4pm.

It has been a fantastic year for the club. In October we were inducted into the FA Hall of Fame in recognition of our historical contributions to football and our unofficial status as the oldest club in the world, whilst looking forwards we have reinforced our close relationship with Cambridge United. Results on the field have been very positive: the Women’s Blues were recently crowned champions of their BUCS league and the Men’s team closing in on second place in their own league, meaning both teams approach the Varsity Match with high hopes.

We are hugely thankful to Redburn for providing sponsorship for this year’s match. Redburn is Europe’s largest independent equities broker, providing institutional investors with equity research and agency execution in Pan-European equity markets. Launched in 2003, Redburn was founded on, and remains committed to, a passionate belief in the importance of in-depth, uncompromised, fundamental research, and serving clients, particularly when augmented by high quality agency execution.

We look forward to seeing you on the 19th!
