UniSport Australia prides itself in providing 42 universities from across Australia with the opportunity to go head to head in search of becoming Australia’s fiercest competitor.
The restructure by UniSport Australia aims to deemphasise the traditional Australian Uni Games social program and promote a divisional, national championship model of competition. The UniSport Nationals will replace the Australian University Games from 2018 (click here to see the University's 2017 results at the event.)
UniSport Australia anticipates this transition will not only attract the highest level of university athletes, but also endorse a safe sports-focused program and draw significant national, state and regional profiles to future events.
The Nationals are comprised of two flagship events: the UniSport Nationals Div 1 and 2, and a number of standalone competitions throughout the year, including Nationals Snow, T20 cricket, 3x3 basketball, triathlon, and others.
The UniSport Nationals Div 1 and 2 events will see more than 10,000 student-athletes head to the Gold Coast in the year to compete in 47 different sport competitions.
Only one University of Sydney team took part in the 2018 Div 2 event - the men's hockey team - who came away with a gold medal to be promoted to the Div 1 competition in 2019.
The Nationals Div 1 event will see the top 10 universities - including the University of Sydney - come together to compete against the best of the best to gain or retain their championship glory across the 33 competitions offered.
