Pickard Properties named as headline sponsor for Leeds Varsity 2022

Pickard Properties is delighted to announce once again that it’s been named as the official headline sponsor for Leeds Varsity 2022. Just like three years ago, the Pickard name is proud to stand alongside the biggest sports competition in the university calendar and show its support for the students of Leeds.

Last time out saw Leeds Beckett University claim their 15th Leeds Varsity title, as two of the city’s universities renew their intense sporting rivalry following the unfortunate cancellation of the 2020 and 2021 events due to COVID-19.

Pickard Properties are experts in student property lettings in Leeds. We pride ourselves on our passion for properties, with an emphasis on providing outstanding student housing for all types of tenants across the region.

Pickard has a strong heritage of supporting university sports in the city, having long-established relationships with student sports teams from both Leeds Beckett University and the University of Leeds.

Denise McArdle, Strategic Director of Pickard Properties, said of the Leeds Varsity sponsorship:

“We are very pleased to be the headline sponsors once again for this major sports event in the students’ calendar. We have sponsored sports teams across both Leeds Beckett University and Leeds University for many years and are looking forward to seeing these talented students compete in their relative disciplines at such very high levels.

It is an event that encourages a positive competitive spirit, and brings to fore the positive impact that sport can have physically and mentally for students and so, yes, we are very proud to be a part of Varsity 2022.”

Jo Mannion, Sports Office Manager at Leeds Beckett University, is excited to have Pickard Properties on board for Leeds Varsity’s eagerly anticipated return:

“It’s great to have Pickard Properties returning as headline sponsor for 2022. They have been incredibly supportive of the event to date and their sponsorship allows us to make the event bigger and better than ever!”

Nicole Jimenez Mogrovejo, International and Postgraduate Officer at Leeds University Union, is thankful that Pickard Properties have decided once again to partner with them:

“We really appreciate the support of Pickard Properties and look forward to working with them again this year. After nearly three years away, we’re really looking forward to opening our doors again to this ‘must attend’ event in the Leeds student calendar. After such a long time, we’re really excited to bring everyone together and celebrate sport, friendship and the positivity of Varsity.

Whether you’re passionate about a sport, a team, your university or just being in Leeds, we’ll have a game for you. Varsity is a chance to come together outside the classroom and join in the wider student community with your friends. It really is for anyone and everyone, whether you’re sporty or not.”

Sports teams from both Leeds Beckett University and the University of Leeds will compete from Wednesday 27 April to Wednesday 4 May for the right to be crowned Leeds Varsity 2022 champions.
