Welsh Varsity cup

Welsh design agency Icon Creative Design has returned to sponsor Swansea University at this year’s Welsh Varsity.

The Welsh Varsity is a week-long festival of sport with students competing in more than 50 sports including swimming, golf, football, netball, hockey and fencing and this year Swansea University is delighted to be hosting activities.

Most events will take place at the University’s Swansea Bay Sports Park on Wednesday, April 24, culminating in the men’s and women’s rugby matches at the Swansea.com Stadium later that night.

The men’s and women’s rugby matches will be available live online via S4C Clic as well as at Rygbi Pawb Facebook Live & S4C’s YouTube channel.

The Welsh Varsity is the second biggest Varsity event in the UK behind Oxford and Cambridge and is keenly supported by thousands of students from both universities.

Cardiff currently hold both the Welsh Varsity Shield and Cup, following their victories in 2023 so Swansea will be eager to take on this year’s challenge on home turf.

Swansea University Head of Development and Engagement Rachel Thomas said: “The Welsh Varsity has always been a greatly anticipated event in the University calendar, and this year is no exception with the event being a sell out! We are so grateful to our sponsors, whose continued support enables us to showcase student sport in such a high-profile way.

Androulla Webb, Managing Director of Icon Creative Design, said: “We’re delighted to renew our sponsorship of Welsh Varsity this year. The atmosphere and camaraderie created through friendly competition is fantastic to witness, uniting participants and supporters in a celebration of Welsh sport. Best of luck to all those taking part. We're looking forward to seeing who comes out on top for 2024.”
