The ancient rivalry between York and Lancaster comes to a head at the largest inter-university sporting competition in Europe.

This year we're back on home soil to face Lancaster, fighting to regain the Carter James Trophy.

Save the dates: Friday 3 May to Sunday 5 May. 

We'll be competing in over 50 disciplines, from archery to octopush. As well as rugby, cricket and football, we'll be fencing, climbing, dancing and shooting for the win.
