Varsity Cup 2024

Represent Team UoP, have fun and take on the University of Southampton.

If you are not already familiar with Varsity Cup, it's the sporting event of the year here at the University of Portsmouth. Varsity sees Team University of Portsmouth take on the University of Southampton's sports clubs in as many sports as possible.

The rivalry between the two teams makes for an extremely exciting, action packed weekend of sport. Spectators are welcome to get behind our clubs and cheer them on.

The location of Varsity alternates each year between Portsmouth and Southampton. As we were the visiting team for Varsity 2023, we will be hosting Varsity in Portsmouth for 2024.
