2020-21 Season 

What is the process for 2020-21 Team Entries?

BUCS team entries opened on 5 June and will close on 16 October 2020. We are planning to commence the 2020-21 season in January 2021. See here for more information.

What about LUSL?

League and Knockout
After consultation with institutions and the management group, the decision has been made to postpone the start of the LUSL league and knockout activity until term 2. The team entry window will open and run alongside the BUCS team entry process, starting from stage 2 on July 24th. 

Events and Additional Activity
We will aim to deliver a LUSL events programme in Term 1. We will look to keep all LUSL Members actively engaged throughout the upcoming season and are exploring a variety of options to provide as much additional activity as possible. All events will be evaluated to ensure that they are safe, feasible and have demand from the students.

What are BUCS’ plans for events in the 2020-21 season?

Discussions are taking place between BUCS staff, key event volunteers, NGBs, venues and chairs of Event Management Groups to devise a revised programme for next season. We hope to publish this by the end of August.

We are still including Term 1 dates within our planning, in the hopes that we will be able to offer activity should it be safe and appropriate to do so.

What is happening with international events?

The European University Games (EUG) scheduled for Belgrade in July 2020 have been postponed. Further information is available on the EUSA Games pages.

BUCS have received confirmation from FISU of the cancellation of several World University Championships between up to the end of August 2020. A full list and further information is available on the World University Championships pages.

When we receive confirmation of event cancellations or postponements, we notify students and institutions who have been nominated or qualified, and post details on the relevant pages of the BUCS website, as detailed above.
