Loughborough Rugby Centenary Year Events
About this event
Loughborough Rugby has outlined a series of celebratory events to mark its centenary during the 2019/2020 academic year.
As part of the anniversary, Loughborough University will play host to Exeter University at Richmond FC’s Athletic Ground in Round 5 of British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) Super Rugby, with kick off at 7pm.
The showpiece match takes place on Wednesday 30 October, with entry priced at £5 per person. Pre-booking is required and can be accessed online.
In addition to the live game in London, several reunion lunches will also be hosted on campus, providing former players and staff the opportunity to reconnect and reminisce about their rugby days at Loughborough.
Each lunch will be split into the relevant decade, starting with the 1960s through to the 2010s. This will include a two-course pre-match lunch at Martin Hall, followed by tickets to watch the National 2 North fixture scheduled for that day, kicking off at 2pm.
