American Football


In recent years the DMU Lions have had some of the most successful seasons since the team's foundation, becoming Division 2 Champions and battling it out in Division 1. Recently reborn as the DMU Lions - but their values remain the same. This team is a family, playing for each other and working hard to achieve success.

If you are considering applying to DMU or are already a student at DMU and want to test, challenge and improve your physical and mental ability, then the DMU Lions are for you! The Lions Family will shape your University experience!

Do you want to play a physical sport, where brains, speed and strength all combine in a team of all shapes and sizes?

No matter what skill set you have... You can be utilised in American Football.

Small and Fast? Big and Powerful?

Lad? Lady? The next Tom Brady?

Everyone is welcome! Welcome to the Pride.
