IV Football and Netball

 

The University of Adelaide has a long history of intervarsity competition in many sports. In 2016, a number of Go8 universities decided it was time to revive the rivalry and re-establish the intervarsity football competition, an IV Netball competition was establishing in 2018. This saw the University of Adelaide (UofA), Melbourne University, Monash University and Australian National University (ANU) battle it out to see which reigned supreme in University Football for 2016.  Today, the competition has now expanded to the Varsity Challenge Sport Conference and involves Universities from South Australia, Victoria, NSW and Queensland.

 

What’s involved? 

Intervarsity football and netball is your opportunity to represent the University of Adelaide in one-off matches against other Australian Universities in a nationwide competition. Most Football games are played on Tuesdays and are either played at Park 12 oval or away at the host university ground. Netball game days are decided by the competing Universities and are either played at University’s organised courts (Netball SA) or away at the host university facilities. 
  

Who is involved?

These competitions are not linked to the Netball SA, SAAFL, AUFC, AUNC or any other club and league. It is completely amateur and only open to university students. It is run and organised solely by us with the support of our football and netball clubs, and other university departments. It is organised solely by the Universities involved and endorsed by UniSport Australia. Only University of Adelaide students are eligible to be selected for its IV Football and Netball teams.
 

Team selection

The aim of team selection is to choose the strongest team possible for each game. As stated, the University of Adelaide IV Football and Netball teams are open to all University of Adelaide students and no bias is shown to those who play for the our affiliated clubs.
