Marjon Sport Federation are the teams behind the teams. We oversee all student sport activity at Marjon from recreational to performance. We provide the tools & support for all students to have a great experience with sport while studying at university. 

University sport is a unique opportunity for unparalleled level of support and competition in a young athlete’s journey. Whether it’s making a new social group to pursuing a professional sporting career alongside academic studies, we’re here to support you. 

The day to day running of the MSF falls under the remit of the Ƶ Sport Federation Executive Committee (which includes student representatives). The Committee is responsible for developing and implementing policies and overseeing discipline across the sports teams.
