Missing that Summer of Sport?

Sport! We should be in the middle of an amazing summer of sport with the greatest show on earth taking place. Instead the Olympics have moved to next year as have the Euros.

Liverpool won the premier league in an empty stadium. Wimbledon was cancelled. The 6 Nations is yet to be completed and the Principality Stadium in Cardiff is currently a field hospital.  And the F1 at Silverstone is weirdly taking place twice but to TV cameras only.

But in the middle of it all, there’s a little bit of normality slowly returning as grassroots sports start to return. And if you’re anything like us, boy have we missed it!

At Host we want to support your teams. So, we’re giving a shout out on our socials to you and the sports that you play. To the grassroots teams at home and the uni teams that you play for week in week out.

Want a shout out for your club?

To be featured all you have to do is DM us on Instagram or Facebook, or send an email to enquiries@host-students.com with your:

  • Name
  • Sport
  • Club
  • Club social media handles

We’ll then post a shout out to you and your team on our Facebook page and Instagram story.


The closing date to be featured is Sunday 9th August.

#HostEnvironmentalPledge.
Getting serious about the environment we live in.

To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.

It’s a simple campaign! If we can reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by 1% then we will donate £10,000, 2% reduction means £20,000, 3% is £30,000 and so on, to 3 charities; BulliesOut, Planet Patrol and World Land Trust.
