How can I join the university's football team? Ilias, Athens


Our Answer:

You can take part in a wide-ranging programme of sporting, recreation and health-promoting activities on campus through uea+sport at our award-winning Sportspark facility.

Sportspark has four 5-a-side and three 7-a-side state of the art 3G synthetic grass pitches filled with a rubber crumb. Plus there are six floodlit, 7-a-side sand dressed Astro-turf pitches. Along with those campus has 40 acres of playing fields for a kick about.  

We’ve got both men’s and women’s football teams. To sign up for your club of interest there will be a clubs and societies fair in your first week as a UEA student, in which you can go and talk to the football team and sign up there. They will be able to provide you with more information when you speak to them at the fair.

Before joining a sports club you will need a Sports Association Membership (SAM) which contributes to the cost of the sports club such as coaching and training, travel to competitions etc.
