BUCS Big Wednesday

25 March 2020 - University of Nottingham 


The pinnacle of the university team sports programme, British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) Big Wednesday, is returning to Nottingham on Wednesday 25 March 2020. 

Hosted by the University of Nottingham for a record third consecutive year, the event will take place across several hub venues in the city including the £40 million David Ross Sports Village on University Park campus. 

The Championship finals see the top student Premier League teams in the United Kingdom battle it out to be overall National champion. In the Trophy competition, squads from the second tier of the BUCS leagues compete for the coveted Trophy Cup. 

With thousands of university sport teams taking part in the BUCS leagues every year, only the very best make it through to the BUCS Big Wednesday finals. Seeded by their league position in the Championship and a draw in the Trophy, the teams have to qualify via several gruelling knockout stages.

More information around fixtures, ticketing and the progress of the #GreenandGold teams will be added in early 2020.
