Varsity is here and we're asking staff and students to show their support so we can maintain our winning start.

The 2016 Varsity competition kicked off this weekend as our American football team, the Leicester Longhorns, demolished the DMU Falcons 28-0.

The action resumes on Wednesday 2 March, with Leicester and DMU clashing in sports of all kinds, from football to lacrosse, Cheerleading to trampolining, and cricket to the flagship rugby matches at Leicester Tigers’ Welford Road Stadium.

Last year we stormed to victory, taking 31 wins out of a possible 52, with women's rugby staying unbeaten for 13 years. We hope to make it another year of Leicester success, so come along, bring your friends and get behind Team Leicester!

This year the sports teams are supporting LGBT History Month, and are urging all their members to #winwithpride so get on social media and show your support. The teams will be sporting natty rainbow laces and raising money for Stonewall while they try to keep the Varsity crown right here where it belongs.
