BUCS Big Wednesday

23 March 2022 - University of Nottingham 

 

The pinnacle of the university team sports programme, British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) Big Wednesday,  returned to the University of Nottingham campus on Wednesday 23 March 2022. 

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

The Championship finals saw 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 competed 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 had to qualify via several gruelling knockout stages.
