29 March: Varsity and the official launch of our new 3G sports pitches Articles

This year alongside Varsity we'll also officially open our new sports pitches.  The two all-weather 3G sports pitches will over the course of 2017 host 68 home games for Team Greenwich, and are a new home for our football, hockey, rugby, American football and lacrosse teams.

Varsity 2017

On the day - 29 March - there'll be badminton, basketball, football, netball and rugby matches, as well as some challenges for the supporters, including:

  • Rugby drop kick challenge
  • Football 3-point contest
  • Hockey showcase
  • FIFA Challenges.

For details of these challenges and all the fixtures see the Students' Union site.

Students and staff from across the university are invited to join this Festival of Sport. If you can't make it along on the day, keep an eye on our social media feeds as we'll be posting updates throughout the afternoon.

The Students' Union have said "they're proud of Team Greenwich's new home and look forward to showing it off at Varsity" and so are we – we hope you can join us there.
