Last month we packed up our bubble football bubbles and headed down to Meadow Lane for the Notts Varsity football match.

The University of Nottingham and Trent University had been battling it out in their varsity tournament all week and now both Unis were going head to head on the football field to raise money for Notts County FC Football in the Community.

During a break between the ladies’ and the mens’ match the Adrenalin Jungle bubbles took over Meadow Lane as five students from each Uni took to the pitch after being picked in a prize draw.

There were more than 2,500 spectators cheering on their teams and laughing their heads off. Nottingham Trent University came out on top with a 3-0 win.




Robert Bayliss from team Trent said: “The whole thing was a great fun. A really enjoyable experience and even better because we won!”

Notts County FC Football in the Community’s events & partnerships executive Neil Kelly said: “We are so grateful to Adrenalin Jungle for supporting our charity and providing the facilities free of charge.

“Everyone clearly enjoyed the tournament and the bubble football entertainment and we’ve raised lots of money which will go towards helping local people who are disadvantaged, find themselves socially excluded, or are suffering from illness. It’s been a great event.”

One of the organisers, Matt Nicholson, the vice president of sport at Nottingham Trent Student Union said: “It’s been a great varsity series this year. There has been a record number of sports and tickets sold.

“It’s absolutely brilliant that we have the opportunity to use venues like Meadow Lane and the National Ice Arena. We’ve had such great support from local Nottingham business like Adrenalin Jungle who have really helped us make this year’s varsity series as exciting and engaging as possible.”
