Cambridge vs. Oxford - 99th Annual Ice Hockey Varsity Match
Sat, 4 Mar 2017, 18:30
On Saturday 4th March the oldest rivalry in the history of ice hockey pays its biennial visit to Cambridge, as the Cambrige Blues take on arch-rivals, the Oxford University Blues in the biggest indoor fixture of the Oxbridge sporting calendar, and one of the biggest varsity fixtures on ice outside of North America.
The 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 in this 99th annual contest.
For those taking the included buses from Cambridge, they depart from Queens' Back at 6:45pm, so please be there by 6:30pm to get your tickets checked and board the buses. For everyone else, doors open at 8:00pm and the puck drop will take place at 8:30pm. There will be a fully licensed bar overlooking the ice open throughout the game, as well as a post-game party for players and fans at Life (Kuda) until 3am.
