As part of the new semester, each student has the opportunity to fight for a place in the grand final of the Student Cup in self-established teams, taking part in as many LU sports and active recreation events as possible.

1 team has already qualified for the grand final after the first stage of the Student Cup last term. This spring term, you and the team also have a chance to get in the middle of the top teams who will fight in the grand final for the main prize! During the qualification stages, the involvement of teams and the results shown in all events organised by the sports Centre of the University of Latvia shall be taken into account. At each stage, the attendance of sports and recreational activities of a given semester and the results presented therein shall be assessed.

Teams from 6 to 10 participants can apply for the LU Student Cup, completing an electronic application questionnaire. You can apply for your team until the end of the second qualifying phase, but we remind you that registering your team membership faster and engaging in events will be an opportunity to earn more points. The name of the team applied for the tournament must match the name of the team applied for the student cup.

For each event hosted by the LU sports Center visited, the team gets 5 points. The team applied for in each tournament must consist of members of the team applied for the Student Cup.

In order to receive 5 points for participation in individual competitions and active recreation events such as student hiking, at least 1 Member of the team applied for the student cup must participate in the particular event.

For outstanding achievements in LU sports tournaments and individual competitions, the team receives additional points in the overall Student Cup rankings. Additional points can be obtained by participating in LU basketball and football leagues, as well as by visiting and attracting LU teams in home games. (Each team, participating in the LU Student Cup, gets the opportunity to attend LU Team Home games for free). For every visit to the LU sports team's home game with a supportive poster and the name of their team on it, the team gets an extra 1 points in the Student Cup overall score. To get this point, one of the team members has to post a picture of the poster on their Instagram stories and tag @LUsportacenter.

You can log on to the team by filling in the application questionnaire here.
