Our Story

The Nottingham Mavericks are one of the largest and most successful University Ice Hockey Clubs in Britain, with a yearly roster that boasts an impressive level of hockey talent. Established in 2001 and based in the East Midlands, the club play at Nottingham's Motorpoint Arena and currently compete across all leagues within the British Universities Ice Hockey Association (BUIHA).

The Varisty Event

The Nottingham Varsity Series comprises of several sports events pitching the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University against each other. But no event in the series is as anticipated as the annual Varsity Ice hockey match.

This event is one of the largest ice hockey varsity matches outside of North America, consistently selling out the 8,000 seats inside the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham in a matter of hours alongside being broadcasted live by the Universities student media across the world.

In the end, the winner takes home the Varsity Trophy, held until the conclusion of the following year's series. Demand for tickets to the match is so high that since 2016 there has been the need for a second fixture, held outside of the Varsity Series, to appease fan's need for tickets.
With an active roster of over 150 student-athletes across a collection of academic institutions, the Nottingham Mavericks is committed to developing our student-athletes from within, by offering training and games to players of every ability. Currently, we have five active teams across all levels of British University Ice Hockey. Our A, B, C and D teams annually compete in BUIHA league cup competitions alongside also having a development team for beginners.

The Battle of Notts

Starting from humble beginnings in 2016, our annual 2nd Varsity event between The University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University, known as the "Battle of Notts" continues to increase in popularity every year. Attracting crowds of over 3500 fans, this high tempo, action-packed thriller is now a staple event on the university sports calendar.
