Free rugby at The Rec! Here’s how to get your Anniversary Game tickets to see Bath take on Cardiff Met

The Anniversary Game, this year sponsored by Bath-based Colour Studios and Dragon Signs, is returning to The Rec on Wednesday 18th October 2023 and you can register now for FREE tickets!

One of the highlights of the University of Bath student sporting calendar, this year’s BUCS Super Rugby match will see the men’s 1st XV take on Varsity rivals Cardiff Met at the world-famous city-centre home of Bath Rugby (6.30pm kick-off).

More than 6,000 fans enjoyed an outstanding evening of top-class student sport at last year’s Anniversary Game, providing plenty of noise and an electrifying atmosphere as the home side roared to a big win over Durham.

Entry to this year’s match is free once again but spectators must register for a ticket in advance (a maximum of two adult tickets per registration).

The Anniversary Game is staged annually to mark the University of Bath being granted its Royal Charter on 25th October 1966.
