Oxford and Cambridge; Cambridge and Oxford; Oxbridge. Two of the oldest universities in England; they feature Venice-like rivers, academic excellence and stunning old architecture. They also have another thing in common – they love beating the other at…well, anything…
…Especially sports. The first Varsity rugby match was held in 1872 with Oxford winning the inaugural meeting. Scroll forward 143 years and the score currently stands at 61–58 to Cambridge. 14 games have ended in draws. More recently, Oxford has been on a winning streak with five consecutive victories.
No team has won it six times in a row, and we have to stop Oxford doing that
Jamie Roberts, Cambridge
This year is especially important as the 29th Women’s Varsity Match will be held at Twickenham Stadium for the very first time. The Oxford men might be on a winning streak, but after being beaten 47–0 in the last women’s Varsity Match, Oxford have hired World Cup winning England coach Gary Street to get them back on track.
We will be there with a host of hospitality packages to boot. The question is – will you be joining us for this epic battle?
