UoN and NTU unite at Varsity to celebrate #ThisGirlCan

With the first 2015 Varsity game kicking off tonight at Capital FM arena, UoN Sport and NTU Sport are delighted to announce  an exciting joint campaign running alongside the high-profile series.

We’re joining sides to celebrate the hugely popular This Girl Can movement and celebrate our female students acting as such strong role models for their sports right here in Nottingham.

Sport England’s This Girl Can campaign has been a huge hit this spring, with their advert reaching nearly 8 million views on You Tube. The campaign is all about real women enjoying keeping healthy and active – an ethos both UoN Sport and NTU Sport fully support. 

Each female team competing in the official 2015 Nottingham Varsity series will recognise an opposition player as the #ThisGirlCan winner. This may be the player who dominated the game, scored the winning goal or just simply the life and soul of the team. 

These two players will be awarded with their prize – a specially designed sweatshirt – during the match presentations at each game. 

Our #ThisGirlCan campaign doesn’t stop there though. 

Not only can the players competing win exclusive Nottingham Varsity stash – we’re asking all girls at both Universities to send in their #ThisGirlCan photos.

It may be you hitting the gym or just ditching the bus and walking instead – anything that celebrates you being active and loving it!

Tweet in your pictures to @UoNSport or @NTUSport with #ThisGirlCan and we’ll choose our favourites throughout the two week series to win an exclusive Nottingham Varsity sweatshirt!
