Beating Kings never gets old

The UCL-KCL rivalry began nearly 200 hundred years ago when King’s College London, an Anglican college was founded - a stark contrast to UCL’s secular mantra.

The rivalry gradually moved away from religion and became more a rivalry of class, with KCL being deemed the more ‘traditional’ and elitist institution, with UCL the liberal and more progressive institution. Rag Weeks became the forum for the students to express their dislike for one another.

This melee took place during the 1934 Rag Week between UCL and KCL medics and engineers on King’s Strand campus

Soon the rivalry moved onto the field of play - the grassy pitches of Shenley and Regents park became the place where old scores could be settled.

Despite the sporting nature of our rivalry, over the years, both Kings and UCL students have kidnapped each other's mascots, holding them to ransom.

In 1989, students from Kings stole Jeremy Bentham's head and played football with it (cue a formal complaint from UCL and threats of expulsions and fines).

Mutual rivalries inevitably lead to a sense of camaraderie among peers and varsity is now a far more sporting affair.

This is a derby, and TeamUCL wears the badge with pride. Will we lift the trophy again?

I’m confident the side can pull together and put on a performance worthy of the fans support. This is the season defining moment.
