Welsh Varsity

Welsh Varsity heads back to Cardiff for 2017

The biggest student event in Wales - the Welsh Varsity Challenge - returns to the Welsh capital in April 2017 after two successful years in Swansea. 

This year's Varsity runs from Saturday 1 April to Wednesday 5 April. Hundreds of students from both universities will compete for the coveted Welsh Varsity Shield at venues across the city, including the Welsh Institute of Sport, the SSE Swalec and Cardiff Arms Park. The event will culminate with the showcase rugby match in front of a crowd of thousands at the Principality Stadium on the evening of Wednesday 5 April, where the Swansea team will be looking to repeat last year’s performance and take home the Welsh Varsity Cup.

Tickets go on sale at Swansea University Students' Union  from 10am on Thursday 2 February.
