Football is also part of the BUCS international programme, with representation of both Men's and Women's teams at the European University Competitions. In 2013, a GB home nations representation attended the World University Summer Games (Universiade), with both men's and women's team competing in what is widely recognised as the second largest multisport games in the world, behind the Olympics. Both teams medalled with the women's team bringing home the Gold, beating Mexico 6-2 and the mens winning Silver, narrowly losing to France in extra time.
