VARSITY: Everything you need to know about 2019’s fixtures

As February creeps closer and closer, so does another annual Canterbury Varsity – here’s all you need to know about the 2019 fixtures! 

The annual sports fixtures were hotly contested with the University of Kent beating Canterbury Christ Church University in a closely fought week of top quality sporting events last year.

Spread over a week, over 40 events will take place with each team vying for the most points in an effort to be crowned the Canterbury Varsity champions.

The first fixture this year is between the American Football teams and will be held on the 3rd February at the University of Kent’s 3GX Pitch.
