Sports Leagues

If you want the continuity of playing with a regular team but in a more informal environment, Saints Sport runs a variety of seasonal leagues and competitions which are open to all. You don’t have to be a member of a club or team – just gather a group of friends and sign-up!

Saints Sixes – Summer Leagues

About the leagues

Saints Sunday League

The 11-a-side Sunday football league is open to all students and runs from September to April each year.

About the league

The Saints Sunday League is organised to ensure that teams are competing against opponents of a similar ability. Promotion and relegation at the end of each season helps to build excitement and guarantees that fixtures will be competitive right to the end.

The Semester 1 season runs from September to December, with leagues returning in January of Semester 2 and running until April. Matches are scheduled back-to-back, with kick off times varying throughout a Sunday Morning and Afternoon.

The format for the Sunday League is as follows:

  • Maximum 16 players per squad
  • Each match is two halves of 45 minutes
  • All matches officiated by volunteer referees from the AU Football Club
  • Number of entries dictates competition format
  • Students must show their matriculation cards to play


Applications for the 2022 league are currently closed.
