Managing sports fixtures


Whether you are a club president or a team captain, you’ll need to make sure you are on top of all your fixture obligations from day 1. Below you will find advice on how to arrange fixtures in Southampton and ensure everything goes smoothly. However, be aware that each league has different rules, so be sure to make yourself familiar with their own procedures too.


BUCS fixtures

Team Sports - All BUCS fixtures are arranged by staff in the Activities Office. They will ensure that facilities have been booked for all your weekly fixtures; however, it is your responsibility to ensure that you have a team ready, know when the fixtures are and how you are going to get to them. There are a number of rules that need to be considered when competing in BUCS and so if you are a club committee member or a team captain, you MUST read through the SUSU BUCS Weds Afternoon Sports Captains guide 2018-19.docx 

Individual Sports – If you compete in an individual sport and would like to enter a BUCS tournament, the Activities Office will help you do this. Please read the following 'BUCS Individual Entry Captains Guide'  for advice on how to do this.

All BUCS enquires can be emailed to


Non-BUCS fixtures

If you are competing in a non-BUCS competition, it will generally be the responsibility of the club to arrange everything. The only exception to this is if you are planning to use facilities at Wide Lane. These should be booked via the Activities Office so that we can ensure that there is adequate first aid cover.


Intra-mural sport

Intra-mural competitions are organised by the Activities Office. For details please contact

The Activities Office is located on level 2 of building 42.
