Edinburgh is one of Scotland’s oldest university American Football teams, and currently competes in the BUCS Division 1 Scotland.

The team will play 6 other universities from around Scotland, these teams will be Heriot-Watt, Napier, Glasgow, University of West Scotland, Stirling and Aberdeen. We train twice a week onfield throughout the season, one of which includes a film session, along with opportunities for weight training together in the university gym available throughout the week.

On-field times:

  • Tuesday 1930-2030(Film), 2030-2200(Field), Peffermill 3G1
  • Thursday 2030-2200(Field), Peffermill 3G1

All kit is provided and included in the fees, as are travel expenses, insurance and league registration fees.

We are highly competitive in our division, looking to be the first Scottish champions, making playoffs the last two seasons 

Off the pitch the team also gathers on Wednesdays for a themed social that typically ends up at WhyNot, and on Sundays at 6 o'clock to watch the NFL at our sponsor pub.
