On Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd March, the oldest rivalry in the ice hockey pays its biennial visit to the Oxford Ice Rink as the Oxford Dark Blues clash with historic rivals the Light Blues in what is expected to be the biggest indoor fixture of the Oxbridge sporting calendar.

This year’s iteration will mark the 134th anniversary of the Varsity Match between the two universities, a fixture that originated in the Swiss Alps in 1885. The Oxford rink is once again expected to reach capacity as crowds cheer on two of the top teams from Division 1 of the British Universities Ice Hockey Association as they go toe-to-toe and battle it out for Varsity Match glory.
