    Hello, I was wondering what the standard of University football is? Of course I'm expecting the 1st team to be mostly made of semi-pros but what about the second or third teams usually? I used to play football in a team until I was 17, most of the team were ex-academy players, so it was an okay standard. Just wondering if I'll actually be able to make these teams

    Depends what uni you go to I'd guess, in Scotland a few universities have teams that play in semi-pro leagues such as the Lowland League. Stirling are in that league and they have a good squad and six different teams. However smaller universities and universities that maybe do not have as much of a sporty side to it will be different and may just play against other universities with a few ex-semi-pros in the team.

    That's such a #lads rumour :lol: - unfortunately at unis in the UK we don't marvel over the sports teams, they kinda sit in their own bubble of self importance within the SU. xD

    But in regards to the thread - you'd join the Football sports team and then they'd sort you into whatever team your ability is.
