Leeds/Bradford MCC University, formerly Leeds/Bradford University Centre of Cricketing Excellence, commonly abbreviated to Leeds/Bradford MCCU, is one of six University Centres of Cricketing Excellence supported by the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC).

Leeds/Bradford MCCU play three matches a year against first-class counties. For the first time, in 2012 two of these three matches were given first-class status.[1] In the first of these, their first ever first-class fixture, they lost to Surrey by only two runs.[2] They had previously beaten the same opposition in a non first-class fixture in 2005.[3]

The former Bradford/Leeds University Centre of Cricketing Excellence team did not play first-class cricket. As Leeds/Bradford Marylebone Cricket Club University, the team has played eight first-class matches from 2012 to 2015 (i.e., two per season in early April).
