VARSITY BOWL X – Oxford Lancers vs Cambridge Pythons

@ Tilsley Park THIS SATURDAY – 2:30 PM KICKOFF

May 7th brings one of the most anticipated American Football match-ups, pitting the two ancient English universities against each other in the oldest rivalry in sports.

It is the 5th match after the addition of American Football to BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport), and the revival of the American Football clubs at each university.

Cambridge have had the advantage in the four previous contests, which resulted in 1 draw and 3 wins for the Pythons.

However, this match-up will prove to be extremely competitive…


The Oxford Lancers have been able to secure a promotion to Division 1 after an undefeated season, a playoff victory, and a narrow loss to the Portsmouth Destroyers in the Division 2 South final. The Lancers will be keen to prove their worth against an outfit in the division above.

The Pythons secured their promotion last season, and have had tough matches this season, only being able to win one game. They’ll be raring to keep their winning streak going against Oxford.

Tickets are £5 each which includes a shuttle bus from the centre of Oxford to Tilsley Park and back. The event is “BYOB”

Coach pick up is at St Aldates police station at 13:30 pm. Fans can buy tickets in advance, at the bus or on arrival at Tilsley Park.
