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 .
