About us

Here at American Football we are focused around competitive weekend games and fun socials during the week. We have an excellent staff of coaches from the top level of play here in the UK that are enthusiastic about enhancing your university experience.

We encourage competitive sportsmanship to win games and award our university BUCS points.

The sport isn't as large here in the UK and so university is a great place to experience it, especially for the first time.

Whether you're looking for a social place to make friends, an activity to blow off steam from your studies or competitive full contact sport to drive you there is a place for anyone here and we encourage all to come down and try it out.


Club memberships are split into three categories. All memberships will cover registration fees, team travel costs and any other team expenses. The difference in cost differs with the kit rented from the club. All players are required to provide their own football boots and mouth-guards.

The standard membership of £175 will provide players with a helmet, shoulder pads and lower pads (game ready).

A discounted membership of £125 is available for players that have their own helmet (shoulder and lower pads provided).

A further discounted membership of £105 is available for player with their entire own kit (lower pads can still be provided in this option).

Events and Activities

The year is focused around season games played on Saturdays or Sundays (with COVID-19 these games will occur only in the spring term this year).

These are complemented by Thursday evening training sessions as well as Saturday midday training sessions if a game is not scheduled. Training sessions run all year until the season ends.

On the social aspect we have nights out with every corresponding SU night (Monday, Wednesday and Friday), with big themed nights out set throughout the year.

Sunday evenings are spent at our local (The Armstrong Gun) drinking pints, eating pizza and watching the NFL games.
