The Transatlantic Series

The Transatlantic Series, Oxford & Cambridge v. Harvard & Yale and other Ivy League Universities including Pennsylvania & Cornell, is the world's oldest international fixture: it originated in 1894, and predating the modern Olympics.

The match has a four year cycle. Harvard and Yale tour to the UK every four years, and the Achilles team tours to the US two years afterwards. In the intervening years, other Ivy League University often tour to the UK to face the Achilles team.

The series offers a unique opportunity to mix with a different culture, face high quality competition, and forge transatlantic friendships.
