A founding member team since the league’s inception in 2005, the AUR Wolves men’s soccer team competes against other Roman university teams throughout the academic year in the Campionato di Calcio delle Università Romane , an intercollegiate tournament sponsored by the municipality of Rome.
Playing on the Wolves’ team gives students an opportunity to truly mix not just with local Roman students but with the international academic community found here as well; in addition to great fun and camaraderie, the tournament offers the Wolves a chance to test their soccer skills against those European. Because AUR provides transportation to its games for both team and fans, the AUR Wolves enjoy enthusiastic school spirit from students, faculty and staff as well as from the tournament’s only mascot, “Wolfie”. The games also offer significant social bonding between the many different study abroad and resident students who attend AUR.
Tryouts for the Wolves are typically held during the first week of classes each semester, with the tournament officially kicking off in October and continuing into May.
Practices are held on Mondays and Thursdays at 7:30-9:30 on the AUR home field “Dopolavoro Cotral” on via della Vasca Navale 100.
While the schedule varies, games are typically held on Wednesdays. The AUR bus picks up the team and their fans from outside “the Arches” before every game (usually 7:15/7:30, please see the MyAUR Events Calendar for specifics for each game) and brings everyone back to the same spot as well.
