Here at the Leicester Longhorns, we are the University's American Football team that play in the BUCS leagues. In addition to top level sport, we are a welcoming group of players that provide a perfect downtime for your university studies! 

With weekly themed socials and joint socials every term with the Leicester Panthers Cheer squad, joining the Longhorns will provide a gateway to one of the university's most prestigious and popular sporting communities. We also watch the NFL every Sunday at a local sports pub.

So, whether you think of yourself as the next Tom Brady, or haven't a clue who Tom Brady is, the Longhorns is an organisation for everyone!

We are currently playing in Midlands Division 1, we gained promotion in the 19/20 season (last official season pre-COVID) going 5-1, winning the division and making the playoffs.

Longhorns Vs Liverpool Raptors Match Report

Having reached the playoffs for the first time since 2017, the Leicester Longhorns were ready and raring to go facing off against the Liverpool Raptors in the Northern Conference Playoff Quarterfinal. However again, the weather intervened leaving Leicester’s home field waterlogged and therefore unplayable. The game was fortunately moved to Loughborough university and their extraordinary facilities.

Longhorns Vs Nottingham Green Match Report

For their first game of the decade, the Leicester Longhorns welcomed the Nottingham Green to Stoughton Fields. Having ended 2019 with a three-game winning streak, the Longhorns were keen to see their good form continue into the new year. With Nottingham sitting at 1-1 before kick-off, they were eager to kick start 2020 with a victory.

Longhorns vs Staffordshire Stallions

After two wins on the bounce, the Leicester Longhorns travelled to north to play the Staffordshire Stallions for their third game of the season. This game had a lot riding on it, as a win for Leicester meant they would be sitting at the top of the table over Christmas undefeated.
