Varsity will take place at the University of Greenwich’s Avery Hill campus, utilising the Sports Hall in the David Fussey building and the recently refurbished multi-purpose, flood lit, all-weather pitches. The fields are a new home for Greenwich’s Football, Hockey, Rugby, American Football & Lacrosse teams. They’re officially home to the Team Greenwich groups, and we look forward to bringing Team Medway there.


There’s a range of entertainment planned alongside all the sport at Varsity – it’s about more than the game. Here’s what you can get involved as a supporter on the day…

In our marquee by the pitches, DJ Deccy will be blasting tunes throughout the day. Medway’s Battle of the Bands winner will be performing on stage at 4.30pm, and Anime and Games will be providing activities to get involved with between games.

There will be live interviews and match reports with Greenwich and Medway team captains and Louis Hale, the Vice President Student Activities at Greenwich. The interviews will be live from the marquee on Facebook and on Medway Radio station.

We’ll also be bringing Sparrows to you! There’ll be a pop-up bar serving food and drink all day alongside other food stalls, so there’ll be something for everyone.

Charlton Athletic will be bringing their Inflatable Football Challenge, and there will be Nerf Wars and Archery Tag for all to play for free during the day.

Last but not least, the Greenwich Mermaid Cheerleaders will helping to end the day with a bang with a performance at the final Football game.
