    I used to go to Kent. I don't remember anyone mentioning that the men's 1st footie team got paid...in fact, I'm pretty sure they would have to pay subscription fees TO the university like all the other sports clubs. I could be wrong though.

    They dont get paid at my uni. Its a uni team so i would really dought it. The only way i can see people getting paid for being in the uni 1st team is if they were spotted but a team n were offered money that way.

    Not really insane. It's like that at most uni's I've come across. Clubs use membership fees to pay for insurance, referee's fees etc

    Lots of people in the first teams of lots of sports at Exeter are on Scolorships, so they get their fees paid and accomodation/food for free......
