There are four Men’s divisions, each with around six teams in (most colleges only have one team, although some offer a second team). There are two leagues, one played during Michaelmas and the other during Lent. For example, if a team in Division III wins the league in Michaelmas they will compete in Division II during the Lent term. The winner of Division I in Michaelmas term will compete in the ‘Supercuppers’ match against Oxford’s Division I winner, this takes place on the same day as the University Varsity match at Southgate HC – this year in March 2014. Blues players are not allowed to compete in the league competitions.
Cuppers is the inter-college knock-out competition where all hockey players in the college can play, including those who have represented the Blues. This starts in Michaelmas and normally concludes towards the end of Lent term or very early in the Easter term.
