BUCS Big Wednesday will return to the University of Nottingham in 2019. Not only does this mark the centenary of the event, but it’s the first time a university will have hosted the event two years in a row.
The event will take place on Wednesday 27 March 2019.
BUCS is the largest multi-sport organisation in Europe, and BUCS Big Wednesday is the pinnacle of the team sport season. To celebrate, University of Nottingham Sport and BUCS will be pulling out all the stops.
Last year saw 104 teams, 55 universities and 14 sports descend upon the University of Nottingham for the event.
Dan Tilley, Director of Sport at the University of Nottingham, expressed his delight in hosting the event during the centenary of university sport:
“As one of the ten founders of the Higher Education sports leagues back in 1919, we are delighted to be chosen as the venue for BUCS Big Wednesday for the centenary year.
“We are very proud to have recently won the Good University Guide University of the Year for Sport, which is testament to the hard work of the University of Nottingham Sports staff and hosting BUCS Big Wednesday provides us a further platform to promote and celebrate our sporting offer, whilst also helping the sector mark 100 years of university sport.”
The announcement comes just after the University was awarded Sports University of the Year by the Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019.
BUCS CEO, Vince Mayne, concludes: “With the University of Nottingham being awarded Sport University of the Year by the Times, I cannot see a better place to host BUCS Big Wednesday 2019.”
