Varsity 2015 dates revealed

25th February 2015

University Radio Nottingham can exclusively reveal the dates for the 2015 Nottingham Varsity series. After the Pulse broke the news at the beginning of the year that this year’s Varsity was to be radically changed and held over a two week period after the Easter break, URN Sport can now bring you the full list of dates.

The series will begin on Monday 27th April with Basketball at the Capital FM Arena. Ice Hockey is on Wednesday 29th April.

Football is on Friday 1st May, followed the next day by Rugby Union on Saturday 2nd May.

The only event not to be held inside the two-week period is the Men’s Cricket, which will be the concluding event of the series on Friday 5th June.

Tickets will be available in early March, with details to be posted on the official series website,

Sports Editor Patrick Hildred summarised how the series will work:
