Varsity returns to StoneX for 2025 with new sponsorship opportunities

The Varsity Matches, the historic annual rugby clash between Cambridge and Oxford Universities, will once again take place at StoneX Stadium, home of Saracens, in the spring of 2025.

Following a successful first outing at StoneX in March 2024 watched by over 50,000 people worldwide, Oxford University RFC and Cambridge University RUFC have confirmed the Varsity Matches will continue at their new home for the 2024-25 season. The date for the 2025 Varsity Matches will be announced during summer 2024.

2024 marks the completion of the Varsity Matches’ three-year partnership with global investment banking and capital markets firm Jefferies. The Varsity Matches are now seeking additional sponsors for 2025 and beyond to continue their aims of supporting student sporting excellence, improving access to Cambridge and Oxford University for young people from diverse backgrounds, and giving back to the community.

"The 2024 Varsity Matches were the first time that these fixtures were held at the StoneX stadium and we're delighted that the 2025 Varsity Matches will be returning there. It proved to be a very professional environment in which to hold these historic matches, and the event was very much appreciated and enjoyed by all those who attended", said John Webster, OURFC Chair.

“The partnership with Saracens also saw a return to profitability for this event for the first time in 5 years, which in turn makes future matches - and all that they deliver in terms of the student player experience - that much more sustainable in future years. OURFC is looking forward to growing the support for these fixtures through our past players and alumni who have always been at the centre of the Varsity Match experience."
