The biggest sporting event of the year is back!

Varsity is the annual student sports event of the year between the University of Plymouth and Plymouth Marjon University, which also raises money for charity.

Due to the pandemic, this year's Varsity will look a little different. Unfortunately, we won't be able to welcome spectators to the fixtures as we usually would but you will be able to watch every game and match via live stream and cheer on your teams from the safety of home.

UPSU is raising money for the Teenage Cancer Trust while Plymouth Marjon University is supporting Young Minds.

The background

Varsity originally started as a challenge between the two institutions' men's rugby teams. Its primary aim was to raise money for charity but additionally, it helped to fuel a healthy sporting rivalry between the two institutions. The programme has since diversified to encompass as many sports as possible to see who is the true sporting champion in Plymouth.
