Both on and off the pitch, RUMS FC shows why it continues to be the largest club in RUMS with a friendly cohesiveness combined with opportunities to play football at the highest level or simply to play and have fun with friends.
Football is the world’s biggest and bets sport, so most of you will have some experience of it. We currently have five 11-a-side teams playing twice a week in competitive BUCS and LUSL leagues against other university teams across London and also a 5-a-side team playing every week. As such we are able to cater for all levels of ability so if you’re a Ronaldo or Ronaldon’t, there’s a place for you at RUMS FC.
We also have the honour to play in the United Hospitals Cup each year; the second oldest football tournament in the world after the FA Cup. Every year we also compete in the National Association of Medical Schools (NAMS) tournament ,which we have won record 10 times. As a fresher you would also take part in the annual Johns’ Cup game, a hotly contested competition between the freshers and second years at the club.
Aside from the football, RUMS FC has one of the strongest social calendars on offer. With weekly socials every Wednesday and plenty of events throughout the year including club wide and teammeals, UH Sports Night and a newly begun Alumni Night, the club provides more than enough respite from the monotony of lectures. We also have two tours each year. One of which to a chosen city in the UK and the other to compete in the aforementioned NAMS competition, which we have famously won a record 25 times. We also offer a social membership for those who don’t wish to play but still want to enjoy the full range of world-class social events.
Joining RUMS FC will quite simply be the best decision you’ll make during your time at Medical School, so make sure you do the right thing by signing up and come to trials.
