For the first time in NTU Sport history, we are hosting the British Universities and Colleges Sports (BUCS) Conference Finals. The event is an excellent showcase of University-level sport and is a key date in many students sporting calendar.

Hosting the event provides an opportunity to not only showcase the fantastic facilities on offer at Clifton campus, but gives all teams a high-quality environment to compete in and have the best experience possible as they battle for victory.

The day will see over 60 teams from across the Midlands competing in over 30 matches. With a day of sporting action from the best University teams in the Midlands, it is not to be missed.

The event is the accumulation of the Midlands conference cups and plate finals, 14 sports are being played throughout the day including Netball and Football. Previous hosts of the event include Leicester, Loughborough and Warwick.

With all teams still battling to reach the sports finals, NTU have plenty of teams in contention for cup and plate glory. The teams battling it out include; Women’s Volleyball 1, Men’s and Women’s Tennis 1, Men’s Rugby Union 5 and both Men’s and Women’s Fencing.

We felt NTU could provide a perfect back-drop for these finals, providing a great experience for these students in – for some – their final match in their university colours at the highest level of competition they will play
