On 7 October 2016, I experienced the best night I had as an MMU student. 5,000 fans from MMU and Uni of Manchester packed out the main stand at the AJ Bell. Our mighty 1st team facing a side who were leagues above our own! But the mighty Met didn’t give up, and with the help of the amazing atmosphere from 1,200 MMU fans, we emerged victorious, 10-5!
On 6 October, we return to the AJ Bell stadium and have our own stand! We are hoping to have somewhere between 1,500-2,000 fans and you can be part of this special night for only £5.
As a former player, I can vouch that playing in front of a crowd, under the lights at a noisy stadium really does raise your game, and we need every single one of you to help us reclaim victory!
The women’s match kicks off at 17:30 & the men’s at 19:45. There will be transport arranged going to and from The Union. These bus tickets will be available to purchase on the day.
So come down, rugby fan or not, to sing, shout, socialise and hopefully celebrate as part of the Man Met family. Visit the official Facebook page and watch highlights from last year’s varsity victory below!
