Durham Saints American Football Club represent Durham University in the BUCS American Football Premiership, currently competing in the Premiership North of the BUCS American Football competition. The Durham Saints American Football Club is an inclusive, hard-working club that combines a fervent love for the sport with an unparalleled sense of community. Whether you’re a seasoned rugby player looking for a change of scene, an American coming from abroad, or just someone who’s looking to get your hands dirty in a new sport, the Saints welcome those from all walks of life.


Last season, the Saints finished the regular season with a 5-3 record, earning them 3rd place in the Premier North division. This was enough for them to qualify for the BUCS Premier Division Playoffs, where they were unfortunately knocked out at the quarter-final stage in a 43-38 loss to the Birmingham Lions.
