British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) organise both individual and team competitions for Universities in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. For many teams the majority of BUCS fixtures take place on Wednesday afternoons but also weekend tournaments take place throughout the year, predominantly for individual sporting events.
BUCS stands as the largest university sporting organisation in the world delivering 52 sports to almost 170 member institutions every year making it very special to be a part of. BUCS provides students with an exciting and prestigious basis on which to play university sport.
BUCS teams compete at a regional level in a league format, with Liverpool John Moores University in the North West region so regularly competing against other universities such as Newcastle, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Keele and Bangor. Alongside this, there is a cup knock-out competition which can allow our teams to compete to be regional champions and for some, national champions.
BUCS is now supported by a full international programme, where British students can trial to be a part of a team to compete for their nation at World University Games and World University Championships.
Liverpool John Moores University currently have 38 teams across 26 sports registered to compete for the 2016/2017 BUCS Championship season. We proudly have some teams representing us in the top leagues in the Northern Region, the Northern Premier League.
