NTU football offers regular games in organised leagues across the University. Enter your own team into the league or we can allocate you a team. These leagues offer weekly fixtures during term time, coordinated by NTU Sport staff and officiated by qualified match officials.

No NTU Sport membership is required. You simply pay the weekly fee each time you play.


Playing football doesn’t have to mean a big, long-term commitment, we run regular Play for Fun sessions that focus on making sport sociable, inclusive and enjoyable.

There is no requirement to join the club, all sessions must be booked in advance on the NTU Sport App.

How to join

If you are successful through our trial process during welcome week, you will need to pay £70 club membership alongside your NTU Sports membership to join the club. Memberships purchased at any point during the academic year are only valid until the end of term 3.
