100th Ice Hockey Varsity Match Oxford vs. Cambridge
Spectators can expect a historical event of global proportions. The encounter between these teams is the oldest rivalry on the ice, and the ice hockey communities of the two elite universities give the event its international flair. Students and alumni from all over the world are expected to be in attendance. With this match, we want to celebrate the close ties England has with winter sports in the Engadine, but also with the Lyceum Alpinum. Since the foundation of the Lyceum Alpinum in 1904 the two universities have had an important role to play in Zuoz ice hockey. Still today the Cambridge team regularly comes to Zuoz in January for their training camp. The Lyceum Alpinum is very happy to take this unique opportunity to bring the Varsity Match between Oxford and Cambridge from Britain to the Engadine, true to the motto: “back to the roots”.
