This year Varsity is supporting Sport in Mind which is a mental health sports charity, by encouraging athletes to wear blue and purple laces. The laces are available from the Sport Sheffield office in the SU for a small donation so you can support the charity as well.
Varsity was off to a knock out start but left the overall competition even with half a point each from the boxing event. The atmosphere was very lively with over 1,000 students from both Universities cheering on their team, making it an enjoyable evening for both spectators and sportsmen.
All remaining Varsity tickets will be on sale on the 10th of March, make sure you don’t miss getting your tickets and head down to your Students’ Union Box Office.
