Most of our teams compete under the British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) banner. This means not only are they governed by each individual governing body, but all teams must also adhere to the BUCS rules and regulations.
BUCS has introduced a system to record fixtures, results, teams, and many other things. BUCS Play is the new home of university sport, an app for all your fixtures and results, and the gateway for entering BUCS events.
What does that mean for you?
Any student who wishes to represent their University must have a BUCS Play account and then become a member of their chosen sport 'community'. Without this, you simply cannot be picked on a team sheet or put into an event.
Just follow these steps to join the world of BUCS Play:
- Download the BUCS Play app from your app store
- Create an account using your student email address
- Find the 'community' you wish to join
- Wait to be accepted by the Union's Sports Administrators
For those students who compete in a competition-based sport such as swimming, athletics, or boxing, you will only need to sign up once the event opens.
