Defending champions FNB CPUT will go head to head with FNB WSU (Walter Sisulu University) in what promises to be an epic Varsity Shield final.

The final battle is scheduled to take place at 7 pm at Tuks Stadium on Sunday, 9 May and will be broadcast on Supersport channel 211.

The Tekkies, as the FNB CPUT is affectionately known, have been impressive this season and are second on the log. The team won all but one of their matches, losing only against their final opponent, FNB WSU in round 6.

The team performed as follows in the first six rounds:

  • Round 1: FNB CPUT 36 – FNB UFH 20
  • Round 2: FNB CPUT 68 – FNB Rhodes 8
  • Round 3: FNB CPUT 109 – FNB DUT 6
  • Round 4: FNB CPUT 54 – FNB TUT 20
  • Round 5: FNB CPUT 53 – FNB UKZN 12
  • Round 6: FNB CPUT 5 – FNB WSU 39

There will be no promotion or relegation after the 2021 season. Instead, the bottom two teams on the combined 2021-2022 FNB Varsity Cup log will be relegated to the FNB Varsity Shield, while the last-placed team on the combined 2021-2022 FNB Varsity Shield log will fall out of the tournament.
