American Football


American Football is a key performance sport at the University of Hertfordshire. ‘The Hurricanes' play in the BUCS Premier South and have a strong reputation nationwide, having won five national Championship titles, along with always being perennial contenders within the final stages. Many players from the team have subsequently represented Great Britain and won national championships with top British clubs.

The Hurricanes welcome all potential players, from experienced to just wanting to have a go at something completely different.


The Hurricanes compete in the National University League and Cup programme managed by BUCS: Men: Premier South & Championship
