FNB Varsity Shield 2020 is a promotion/relegation season!
While the seven teams would have come into the season aiming to succeed FNB CPUT and win the 2020 title, the secondary goal is gaining promotion to the FNB Varsity Cup in 2021. This will be determined by virtue of the combined FNB Varsity Shield 2019-2020 log.
It is important to note that:
- Top of the FNB Varsity Shield Log, over the combined log of 2019 and 2020, will automatically go up to the FNB Varsity Cup for 2021.
- Bottom of the FNB Varsity Cup Log, over the combined log of 2019 and 2020, will automatically go down to the FNB Varsity Shield for 2021.
- The team ending in 2nd position of the FNB Varsity Shield and the team ending in 8th position of the FNB Varsity Cup, over the combined log of 2019 and 2020, will play in a promotion/relegation match on the 21 April 2020. The loser of this match will play in the FNB Varsity Shield in 2021.
Every week the log will be updated so you can track the fortunes of your favourite varsity. Hopefully they're closer to safety, than not!
