This year’s Welsh Varsity will be held in Swansea, where the Liberty Stadium will play host to the showpiece rugby match on Wednesday 25 April.
Now in its 22nd year, the tournament sees Swansea University sports teams go head-to-head with Cardiff University students in the biggest student event in Wales and the largest student multi-sport event in the UK.
The Welsh Varsity is a week-long festival of sport, running from 18 – 25 April. Throughout the week, students will compete in over 40 different sports for the Varsity Shield, including Ultimate Frisbee, swimming, golf, fencing, squash, boxing, basketball, and hockey.
The majority of the Welsh Varsity games take place at Swansea University’s International Sports Village in Sketty Lane on Wednesday 25 April, culminating with the men’s rugby match at the Liberty Stadium at 7pm.
Swansea will be looking to retain the Varsity Shield for another year, having taken it home for the first time in the competition’s history in 2017. Cardiff University’s men’s rugby team will be looking to repeat last year’s performance in the Principality Stadium, and take home the Welsh Varsity Cup.
