Meet The Tribe

The Tribe is the new University of Essex student section, here to support the sport teams at the University of Essex. You don't need to be a star on the court or out on the field to join The Tribe. Your membership to this exclusive supporters club means that you are more than just part of the team - you’re part of the Essex family.

With your support The Tribe will be the loudest, proudest, and most inclusive student section in the country that will give our Essex sport teams the home advantage, no matter where we play, or who we play, making the gameday experience at Essex truly unforgettable!

There's more to being a Tribe member than just leading chants, waving flags and supporting our teams, you will also be invited to a number of social events exclusively for Tribe members throughout the year that help you connect with other like minded students with a passion for all things Essex and all things sport. This includes promotional giveaways, pre-match socials, and themed events such as our popular Halloween Spooky Hoops special.

Back your team, feel the vibe, Join the TRIBE.
