A varsity match is a sporting fixture between two university rivals. It is most commonly used to describe meetings between Cambridge University and Oxford University. However, the oldest recurring varsity match is the Scottish Varsity rugby match between the University of St Andrews and the University of Edinburgh at Murrayfield stadium.

Varsity in England[edit]

By far the country's longest-running series of varsity matches is played between the University of Cambridge and the University of Oxford with some rivalries airing live on national television. Unlike in North America, the broadcast of university sport is not commonplace.

In recent years, city and regional sporting rivalries have developed.
