American Football

At Loughborough we have a fierce competitive spirit, on-field hustle and the desire to win.

Athletic Union Club

American Football is played outdoors and we compete in the BUCS Premier North division. Our club was formed in 1987 and has a purpose-built 3G American Football field next to the Stadium by Holywell Park. Loughborough Students American Football Club is the first team to win 100 games in British American Football History.

We have been incredibly successful in recruiting athletes from other sports. Our coaches use these different skills to build a great squad and players frequently progress to represent their country at student or international level.

There are matches and flag football games throughout the year that all members are welcome to play. Whether you are a beginner or a more experienced player you are likely to find your place in the team who continue to dominate the North Division BUCS League.

We are constantly recruiting for new talent and are continuing to train towards securing the BUCS National Championships once again.  Regardless of your previous playing experience, if you are interested in American Football we want to hear from you as we cater for complete beginners as well as experienced players.

Coaching and volunteering

Within most sports there are a range of sports volunteering roles and opportunities for you to get involved and gain experience in. This ranges from coaching and officiating to events, marketing and media and sport science support.
