130th Football Varsity + Thames Boat Race


The upcoming 130th Football Varsity Match is to be played on the 6th April (The day of The Boat Race). The match is to be played at Craven Cottage, a Premier League football ground (home to Fulham FC), and promises to have a great atmosphere.

The game kicks off at 3pm and will end by around 5pm, at which point, spectators will be able to turn around to a prime location on the River Thames to watch the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Crews do battle, from the start of the course.

Tickets for the whole day are £15, which includes both a drink (pint of beer, soft drink etc.) and a food item, such as a burger. There is also a bar which will be open throughout the day and additional food will be purchasable. This is a great opportunity to catch two historic sporting events in one day, as well as an excuse to don the light blue and cheer on Cambridge!
