Be there for this year’s Battle of the Blues as the Varsity Match returns to Twickenham Stadium on Thursday 6 December 2018.
Played since 1872 and held at the home of England Rugby since December 1921, The Varsity Match is once again set to turn the hallowed turf two shades of blue, as the women and men from Oxford and Cambridge Universities do battle in this iconic clash.
As Oxford and Cambridge get set to go head-to-head on the water in this year’s Cancer Research UK Boat Race, you can now look forward to this year’s mouthwatering feast of Varsity rugby at Twickenham.
Discounted Early Bird tickets from £20 adults and £10 students and juniors go on Pre-Sale Thursday 15 March for previous Varsity Match bookers, before going on General Sale on Monday 19 March. Schools and group bookings of 10+ are also available at discounted rates alongside great value Twickenham Hospitality packages from £170+VAT.
Last year’s Varsity Matches saw a double victory for Cambridge, with the women claiming a 0-24 Light Blue triumph over Oxford before the Cambridge men secured back-to-back Varsity victories with a 10-20 win over their Dark Blue rivals to lift The Rhino Trophy.
With 136 men’s matches played and Cambridge leading Oxford 63 – 59, and Oxford leading Cambridge 19 – 12 in the women’s match, this rich rivalry is alive and as close fought as ever.
