Nottingham is England’s Home of Sport

October 27th, 2015

Last week Nottingham was announced as England’s official Home of Sport.

The announcement came on the back of a national campaign run by the tourism board VisitEngland, and saw Nottingham beat the likes of Yorkshire, London and Manchester to the title. The decision was made on the back of an open national vote, and Nottingham secured 38% of the overall vote, reinforcing the popularity of the decision.

The University of Nottingham has always played an integral part within the city’s rich sporting tapestry. To find out what being England’s Home of Sport means to both the city and the University, visit our UoN Sport blog.
