The £1.7 million project to build two multi-purpose, flood lit, all-weather pitches is coming to its final stages with an expected usage date of early December. It’s been an incredibly long road with SU involvement at all stages from the initial lobbying by my predecessors, to the final working details that I’ve had the privilege and responsibility of being able to influence. The fields are going to give a new home for both fixtures and training, to our Football, Hockey, American Football & Lacrosse teams as well as being used to host some Rugby fixtures. With this additional facility our Student-Led Sports Teams will be able to increase their membership & number of competitive teams, train at more convenient times and most importantly nearly end their dependence on outside venues. All these things combined help to make sport at Greenwich the most accessible it’s ever been.


This year we’re taking Varsity to the supporters!

3 fans will have 3 chances to hit the crossbar from 30 yards out from a drop kick.

At half-time in the Men’s Football 1sts match, 3 fans will have the chance to score from 3 points – the penalty spot, 25 yard line and half-way line.

From 1.20pm our Greenwich Hockey Club will be hosting a hockey showcase on the sand-based astro-turf pitch. It’s been an amazing season for the club with a promotion for the women’s team, and we’re celebrating their success!

Head to Sparrows as our Anime and Games Society will be hosting FIFA Challenges throughout the day!


Let’s Send Varsity 2017 out with a bang!

SOAP are taking over Sparrows on a Wednesday night and bringing you the best of Spring break, with red cups, free hot dogs, a surf simulator, photo booth and so much more!
