    Football America UK - University All-stars Registration Live!

    Football America UK - University All-stars Registration Live!

    The University All-Star game has been reborn under the Football America UK banner! Once vaunted as one of the best development opportunities for both Players and Coaches from across the UK, the University All-Star programme played its last game at the end of the 2008/09 season. Now, the UK’s number one American Football Shopping Destination has received permission from the British American Football Association (BAFA) to revive the competition and make it bigger and better than ever!

    BUCS Competition Commission Lead Marcus Boswell - 

    "The return of an annual All-Star Game is another clear indication of where the student game in the UK is headed. From personal experience, the prospect of mixing with the best talent from across the country leads to growth difficult to gain elsewhere, so thanks go to FAUK for making this happen.

    Couple it with recently announced positive conversations regarding the potential return of the GB Students programme, it is an exciting time with more and more opportunities becoming available for an individual to showcase and refine their talents."

    Register NOW! 

    Registration is open to all students studying for a Degree or higher qualification and registered to one of the 81 competing BUCS University Teams during the 2018-19 season, including those who completed their studies in that year and have since graduated.

Trials and Practices will be held at Sheffield Hallam Sports Park for the North and Hertfordshire University Sports Village for the South, consisting of two on-field practices which will each be 2 hours long, offering applicants sufficient time to show their abilities to coaches and any external scouting parties who are in attendance. Trials, practices and the game will be covered by BAFA insurance for all involved.
