As stated in the Join UBAFC tab, a number of current players failed to get into the club at the first attempt. If this is the case, the Intramural 11-a-side Football which takes place on the Downs weekly is a great way for individuals to play football regularly before retrialing for the club at the next available opportunity. Alternatively, if students are not prepared for the serious challenge of balancing university football with their studies, getting involved in the Intramural set-up allows players to play football in a more casual and relaxed environment.

Intramural 11-a-side football is the biggest league at the university with an incredibly enthusiastic community. 50 teams and over 500 players descend on the downs each Wednesday to play in one of the most entertaining sports leagues the University of Bristol has to offer.
