Nine sports. Two Queensland universities. One winner.
As if Orientation Week at UQ wasn’t already big enough, The University of Queensland will host arch nemesis QUT in a battle royale on Thursday 23 February – the day after Market Day.
Starting at 1pm, the inaugural Varsity Clubs Clash pits UQ and QUT together in a smorgasbord of pursuits, starting with basketball and ending with rugby league, and featuring seven other sports jammed in between.
A joint initiative between UQ Sport and QUT Sport, the Varsity Clubs Clash will be held on a rotating basis, with UQ home to the event in 2017 and QUT hosting in 2018.
