Athletic Union

The Athletic Union is the body that supports all sporting activity at Cardiff University Students' Union. We support students that run over 60 sports clubs including individual and team sports, outdoor and water sports and martial arts.

What AU Clubs Are There?

There are 63 AU clubs ranging from American Football to Ultimate Frisbee. A full list can be viewed here.

How Much Does It Cost To Join?

You have to pay a basic £15 fee (which is subject to change each year) to be a member of the AU. This fee covers insurance but once you've paid you're good to take part in as many clubs as you want. Each club has their own specific joining fee.

EY Team Cardiff Athlete of the Week

This year we're introducing a weekly award for athletes displaying an outstanding performance, the EY Team Cardiff Athlete of the Week.

Nominations open every Wednesday and as well as pride you can also get some cool prizes.

BUCS, British Universities and Colleges Sport, manages a sporting framework of competitive fixtures and events for over 150 institutions around the UK. Cardiff registers nearly 100 teams in the various leagues and competitions each year and sees students travelling around the country to represent Cardiff University. Last year, our teams put Cardiff University in 15th position overall across the 50 different sports hosting events.
