The Sparkes Cup 2018 – Saturady 23rd June at Wasps FC Sports Ground

The pinnacle of the Imperial inter-college social rugby calendar – the Sparkes Cup 2018 – is happening on Saturady 23rd June! If you’re in the area, feel free to come along as the event is free and open to all, whether as a player or a spectator. The Sparkes Cup first brought together the RCSU, RSMU and CGCU rugby teams in 1950. Over time the rebranding of Imperial has seen these college teams fall by the wayside; RSMU play The Bottle Match once a year, and CGCU make their way to Oxford. The Sparkes Cup was restarted in 2017, and will be competed for again this summer with support from the RCSA and CGCA.
