Newcastle University Athletic Football Club, known affectionately as “The Royals”, is a proud sports team of Newcastle University. The University's reputation for sport is well deserved. Our sports teams have finished in the top 10 out of around 146 Higher Education institutions in the British Universities and Colleges Sports (BUCS) table for seven of the last ten years. Newcastle University finished ninth in the overall BUCS rankings for the second consecutive year despite the 2019/20 season ending much earlier than expected. Newcastle University Athletic Football Club boasted another BUCS league title win in the 19/20 season alongside promotion to the BUCS Premier League. The lads now find themselves in the highest tier of football at university level, and are set to compete at this level for the first time in the upcoming season, due to the 20/21 season not going ahead. Recent achievements include the Northumberland FA Scott’s Les Todd Benevolent Bowl trophy from the 17/18 season being retained in the 2018/19 season, Northern Alliance champions, back to back strong seasons in the prestigious Northern League, and an excellent run in the 20/21 FA Vase, beating established sides from the division above in Whitley Bay and Thornaby, on the way to the first round proper.
