Many years ago a group of sportsmen banded together and decided to give the University of York its first American Football team. Yorkshire had long embraced the sport of American football, but York could not claim to home a team a worthy of representing the beloved White Rose. In this opportunity the York Centurions were born and fast forward to the 2017/18 season and the team lives on, plying it’s trade in the BUCS Borders conference. With ambitions of glory and promotion forever present, the playoffs remain the promised land for the current crop of Centurions. As always, we look forward to welcoming and recruiting those with passion and skill into joining our club. We have a committed coaching staff with a wealth of experience in training players that are totally new to the game and do not even have a grasp of the rules. Experience in the sport is not needed, all that is required is enthusiasm, athleticism, and the willingness to join a brotherhood that is like none you have ever seen before.

Outside of the regular season, we play the Lancaster Bombers in our unique annual inter-university sport competition, Roses.
If you are interested in being part of the team as University Student player or as a Coach or in anyway find our details on the Contact Us tab
