• The 6th Annual Sheffield Varsity Match

    Posted on Sun 24th January, 2010

    For 364 days of the year the Sheffield Bears combine the forces of Sheffield University and Sheffield Hallam University to compete in the British Universities Ice Hockey Association. One day each year the club splits into its respective halves and players take to the ice to represent their University. On the ice, friendships are forgotten and players battle it out to claim victory over their rivals in 60 minutes of speed, agility and skill playing the fastest team sport in the world. Last year's bout was the closest it has ever been with Hallam clinching an overtime winner to take their 5th consecutive title and remain undefeated in the history of the competition.

    With the success of last year the Sheffield Bears are stepping up a notch and taking the game accross the road to the Sheffield Arena.There will be 5,000 seats available to come and see the spectacle that is Varsity Ice Hockey. Come and enjoy this thrilling game with us for a cost of £2 per ticket. Tickets are available from Bears players, Hallam and University of Sheffield unions as well as the Sheffield Arena box office.

    The Sheffield Bears look forward to seeing you there.
