Oxford Blues Info
The Oxford Blues Varsity Ice Hockey Team is the second oldest ice hockey team in the world, tracing its roots back to the first varsity match vs. the Cambridge Light Blues in 1885 in St. Moritz, Switzerland. In keeping with our team’s 129-year history and tradition, the Oxford Blues only accept members of Oxford University. As it has every year since 1885, the season culminates in the Varsity Match, the oldest annual rivalry in hockey history, against the Cambridge Blues, which the Oxford Blues won last year by a resounding score of 13-7. The Blues are one of the most successful teams in the history of the BUIHA, having won the League (Cup Competition) playoffs in 2009, 2010, and 2014.
The Blues are governed by the Oxford Ice Hockey Trust, an independent, registered charity in England and Wales (registration no. 1154398). The Trust provides financial and administrative support for men’s ice hockey for students of Oxford University through the Oxford Blues team. The aims of the Trust are to promote, support, and develop men’s ice hockey for members of the University of Oxford, and to preserve the history, heritage, and long-upheld administrative independence of the Blues. The motto of the Trust and the Blues team is pro factoribus, per factores -- for the players, by the players.
