About Varsity

The biggest sporting event of the year. An inter-university sports varsity between arch rivals University of Leeds and Leeds Beckett University (formerly Leeds Met) which includes 60 fixtures across 25 different sports all in one day. The event culminates with the Men’s Rugby Union Grand Finale at Headingley Stadium in the evening, which attracts an audience over 12,000 students each year. A unique spectacle which you cannot miss.

This year marks the 10 year anniversary of Leeds Varsity and with it a brand new look for Varsity. The event began as a small affair between the two universities with just 10 sports. Leeds Varsity now boasts over 60 fixtures across the day, culminating in the Rugby Union finale held at Leeds Carnegie stadium which last year attracted an audience of over 12,000 spectators, the 5th highest attended rugby union match that week in the UK!
The Varsity team have worked hard this year to refresh the look of Leeds Varsity which alongside the brand new website has propelled Leeds Varsity into the professional arena.

This year we are offering a special alumni ticket for the Leeds Varsity Rugby Union Finale. For £15, the ticket offers alumni seating in the VIP Carnegie Stand and access to the private Concourse Bar. Alumni tickets can be purchased with an alumni code available for any alumni from their respective University.

The code is valid until 6pm on Tuesday 30th September and alumni tickets are available by coming down to the Leeds Rugby Store, online at www.yorkshirecarnegie.com or over the phone on 0871 423 1315 (calls are charged at 10pence per minute – calls from mobiles may vary)
