The ‘Northumbria Mustangs’ are one of a handful of sports that allow mixed teams to compete in BUCS on behalf of the university. The Mustangs provide a very welcoming and open environment for all abilities to come along and join in. They play weekly BUCS fixtures on a Sunday and have qualified for the play-offs in the past couple of years.

The team also have key links with local team ‘Northumberland Vikings’ and players often have a role in both teams.
