Who are we?

De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) understands the benefit of sport, the way it brings people together, instils principles of teamwork and inspires a winning attitude. DMUsport works to offer that experience to as many students as possible, enhancing student experience, promoting a fit and healthy lifestyle and showcasing DMU as an ambitious sports institution.

Sport at DMU is on the rise and there are endless opportunities on offer for students to play competitively or simply just to get involved. Whether it be through the nationwide competitive sports programme; British University and College Sports (BUCS), sport specific competition, intra-mural leagues or through the DMUactive recreational sports programme.
