We are LIVE. Today, Sheffield Varsity launch the official 2019 fixtures list; a fortnight of sporting delight that will commence with a Downhill Dual Slalom race at Parkwood Springs on Wednesday 13th March and close with the Ice Hockey Finals at Fly DSA Arena on Wednesday 27th March. This year’s Varsity line-up includes 79 fixtures and features 32 sports. There are 78 points up for grabs during Sheffield Varsity 2019 and both Team Hallam and University of Sheffield sports clubs will be representing their universities, cheered on by thousands, as they compete for the coveted Varsity trophy.
Yesterday, Team Hallam and University of Sheffield battled it out on the slopes of the French Alps in an epic Snowsports Varsity day-long event. More than 600 supporters travelled out to Val Thorens to back their teams in a series of freestyle and slalom skiing and snowboarding fixtures.
During Varsity, we asked sports teams from Team Hallam and The University of Sheffield to work together to create a photo representation showing how their sport embraces the Varsity Oath of Pride, Respect, Fair Play and Sportsmanship. Teams were asked to submit their entry to the Sheffield Varsity Facebook page to be in with the chance of winning.
University of Sheffield have claimed the Varsity trophy for the sixth consecutive year! The final score of this year’s competition was 45 – 34, with University being in the lead most of the way. Thank you to all athletes that have competed in Varsity this year, the spectators that have attended this year’s events to cheer on their institution, and also to the staff and volunteers that made the event possible.
