2017 Varsity - Live Results and Info



The 2017 Varsity Day is this year being hosted by the University of Sussex on Sunday 19th March. The day sees local universities Brighton and Sussex field sides across 22 fixtures. Each fixture is worth a point and the university with the most points at the end of the day wins the prestigious Varsity Cup. With Sussex breaking with tradition and winning the last couple of years, Brighton will be looking to make amends. The result in recent years has been to the wire with several fixtures being decided on the final kick or ball of the game. 

You can follow all the action across all the sports on the day via the Sport Brighton Twitter or get updates about the event on the Official Brighton Varsity Event page on Facebook.
