Last year, a number of Go8 Universities decided it was time to revive the rivalry and re-establish the intervarsity football competition. This saw the University of Adelaide (UofA), Melbourne University, Monash University and Australian National University (ANU) battle it out to see who reigned supreme in University Football for 2016.
The competition started with a dominant UofA performance against Melbourne University at our home ground. We then went on to continue the fantastic run with an outstanding away win against ANU. Unfortunately, we ended the year with a loss to a strong Monash University side, and with that, Monash were declared the overall champion.
In 2017, the UofA will look to take the title when the tradition continues. In March, we'll fly to Melbourne for a clash with Melbourne University and then return for a yet to be confirmed date with ANU on our home ground.
You don't have to be an Adelaide University Football Club member to wear the University colours. If you are a current student, you are welcome to trial in an attempt to book your spot in the strong UofA line up. If you would like more information about what is involved, or to register your interest please complete the registration form and our Football Coordinator will be in contact in due course.
