Leicester City Football Club
Brilliant teamwork has powered Leicester City to the Premier League title - and De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) is proud to say we’ve been on the same side for years.
The latest agreement to become the club’s Official Higher Education Partner builds on four years of two great Leicester institutions working together.
Leicester City has challenged convention on their road to Premier League glory, an ethos which DMU holds dearly.
Current students and graduates are also exploring employment opportunities with the club as they pave their careers and staff and students also reap the benefits of exclusive ticket giveaways.

Leicester Tigers Rugby Football Club
De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) has a unique partnership with Leicester Tigers, one of the best-know rugby clubs in the world, and the most successful in English rugby union. DMU and Tigers are working together to benefit students and staff at the university, and the club in Britain and overseas.
Tigers give tickets to DMU students and staff so they can attend all A-league and Academy home matches free of charge, as well as ticket offers for first-team matches. Varsity games, which see a showdown between student teams from DMU and the University of Leicester, are played at Tigers’ Welford Road stadium.
Leicester Ladies Hockey Club
De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) is proud to be working with one of Europe’s elite hockey clubs, Leicester Ladies (LLHC).
The university has been working with the club since the 2015/16 season, with the partnership providing a whole host of opportunities for student hockey teams.
The deal provides elite provision for DMU’s student hockey club as well as the university being the official shirt sponsor for five of LLHC senior teams and three junior sides.
LLHC coaches Lauren Osgood and David Hill have guided the club to great heights this year, with the men’s side winning their Varsity for the first time and the women’s side winning their British University and College Sports (BUCS) league with a 100% winning record. The women were unfortunate to not add a cup victory to their name after reaching the final in March.
