GU Men's Football Club

GU Men's Football Club

Founded 1877

Glasgow University Men's Football Club is one of the most competitive and successful sports clubs at the University of Glasgow.

Within the club there are four different squads – Under 21s, 3rd Team, 2nd Team and 1st Team – who all compete to a high level in Saturday football. As a founding member of the SFA, the 1st Team also compete each year in the William Hill Scottish Cup.

In addition to this, the club puts forward three squads to compete in the top three divisions of the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) leagues, where they play against other Universities from around the UK. The 2018-2019 season saw our 1st Team win 1A, our 2nd Team win 3A and our 3rd Team win 4A – a clean sweep which hasn't been done previously.

At the GUFC we pride ourselves on our professional approach to football, and all players are fully committed to furthering the success of the club.

Charity Events

GUFC run an annual charity six-a-side day called "Diddies" in memory of ex-GUFC player Craig Henderson, where we raise money for the JMA Trust.


The football club are renowned for their nights out, as well as annual club tours, to places such as Bulgaria, Greece, Barcelona and Toronto.


Training takes place at Garscube Sports Complex.
