Welcome to the Wolfpack!
Being part of the City Wolfpack is about much more than representing the University competitively - whether you choose to volunteer at our events, help at practice sessions, coach or officiate for one of the representative teams or simply take part in social sport, you are part of the pack!
From representing City at competitive sports to participating in our social sports programme; CityActive, there’s lots of ways to get involved. As a City student, you’ll also get discounted access to our newly built sports centre and gym, CitySport.
Getting involved will not only add to your social network, it will provide great opportunities to develop skills for your future.
TeamCity and CitySport are inclusive environments, and we welcome everyone, regardless of gender background or faith .
A Varsity is a series of sporting fixtures between two local or rival universities. The oldest Varsity match in the world is in cricket between the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge, having first been played in 1827.
36 teams, 2 universities, 1 trophy
The 2017- 2018 season brought with it the second of a three match Varsity series against Kingston University. Having been victorious in year 1, City were keen to win and retain the "Thames river trophy".
36 teams competed in 10 different sports across two days of sporting action. Cheered on by the sporting community and with a special appearance by CityWolf, the official students’ sports mascot, City were again victorious, winning 10-7 overall and taking a 2-0 lead in the series.
This year’s series will be bigger and better than ever, with sports taking place over three days and a special society takeover taking place at Kingston. Come and support the Wolfpack as they play to win the series undefeated.
