UoM and Salford Rugby League teams battle at Varsity

The 29th March sees the University of Manchester men’s Rugby League do battle with Salford University once more. The Regional Arena has been a happy hunting ground for the boys in purple, winning each of the last three contests there. Join them as they seek to win their fourth ‘Two Cities Challenge’ on the trot.

Last year’s encounter was an enthralling affair, with each team having got the better of the other earlier in the season. Salford claimed the League with a rare result at the fortress Armitage, while Manchester triumphed in the Cup after a gruelling game. Manchester, however, set the score straight with an emphatic 44-6 win on Varsity night. Aside from the score line, it was a fantastic night for both sets of fans. A good-natured crowd got behind their respective sides with raucous support. At full-time, everyone shook hands and journeyed back to Fallowfield for a big night at 256.

This year will build on last year’s stellar event. You can expect larger singing crowds. A bigger and better after party. And of course, another fine night of Rugby League.

At an early-bird price of £5, the Two Cities Challenge is not to be missed. Tickets include coach travel to and from the stadium, entry to the Official After Party at 256, as well as your match seats.
