Campus Football

Let battle commence.

If you are an avid football player or just want a regular game each week, then get yourself involved in the HertSquad campus based football programme.

Renowned for providing a great social setting to play football with your friends, course mates or house mates against other students in our semesterly leagues.

The student programme includes an 8-a-side football league and 6-a-side football leagues.

If you are a student looking for a team to join or you are student captain looking for extra players to join your squad, then come along to one of our FREE 'Get Involved in Football' sessions. Details of these sessions can be found below.

In addition to the football leagues above, Active Students also run recreational turn up and play football sessions including a women’s only session 'Goals 4 Girls'. For more information on these sessions, please click here.

All of the above run in both Semester A and Semester B and have a presence at both campuses.
