Selected Team Members

When selected to the team, you will be added to our WhatsApp group where we will update to team members about trainings and fixtures. Then we will ask you to register yourself into BUCS play so that you are able to play the matches and you will also have to purchase a sports card.

To represent City in your chosen sport you must first attend a trial or open practice. Once selected for a team you must purchase a sports membership. Once purchased, you can represent City throughout the 2022/23 season.

Membership costs £50 for the academic year – You are not required to purchase more than one membership if representing more than one team.
