University Sports Teams

All of the University of South Wales’s sports teams (which represent the University competitively against other institutions) and clubs (which are less competitive and more focused on the enjoyment of the sport) are run by the Students’ Union. As well as being a great way to meet other students who share your sporting interests, many of these clubs and teams compete nationally against other universities as part of the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) Leagues and Championships.


All matches are played on a Wednesday and the results are updated every Thursday morning. This area of the BUCS website also includes all the season’s fixtures and the position of the University in our league.
