Uni v Army Games


When: 12 October 18, 12pm -- 9pm

Where: Townsville Stadium & JCU Joe Baker Field

Townsville is known for its large University and Army populations and the rivalry that exists between the two groups. In an effort to strengthen the bond between the University and Army communities, James Cook University and the Australian Army’s North Queensland Contingent carry out an annual event called 'The Battle of the Icons'.

The Battle of the Icons event sees multiple sports contested between the two groups over one big day of competition. The event culminates with the prestigious Chancellor’s and Commander’s Cup rugby union matches.
