The Varsity Matches 2023

Oxford and Cambridge Universities will play their annual Varsity Rugby Matches at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday 25th March 2023.

The Varsity Matches have traditionally been played on a Thursday in December, but the switch to a Saturday in spring presents an exciting new opportunity to experience this historic rivalry at the home of English rugby! 

We are excited to offer alumni premium seats for both matches, and access to the Varsity Gathering in the Rose Room. The Rose Room has its own bar and food vendors nearby so you can catch-up informally with other alumni over a drink between and after the matches. Tickets to the Varsity Gathering (including premium seating for the matches) are £40 for adults and £20 for children.

Registration for the alumni tickets with access to the Varsity Gathering will open via this webpage shortly. Alternative ticket types can be purchased directly via the Varsity Matches website. Match tickets start at just £25 for adults and £15 for juniors, making it a great day out for all of the family. 

Q: How do I book?

A: Follow the registration link below for alumni tickets (premium seats + entry to the Varsity Gathering in the Rose Room). For other ticket options, visit the Varsity Matches website.

Q: How do I access my tickets? 

A: You will need to download the Twickenham app in order to collect your eticket for entry to the stadium. If you have an alumni ticket with access to the Varsity Gathering, you will also receive a wristband in the post for access to the Rose Room. Please note that you will need both your eticket and your wristband, as they each only allow access to the Stadium and Rose Room respectively.

Q: I want a ticket but I don't want premium seats or access to the Varsity Gathering. Are there alternative ticket options?

A: Yes. Match tickets start at £25 for adults and £15 for juniors, and can be purchased directly via the Varsity Website

Q: I'm a recent alum. - can I sit with the students?

A: Yes, Varsity are also offering young alumni (graduating since 2020) the opportunity to sit with current students. If you are interested in this, please email
