A media statement released following the meeting, read:

Member universities are currently restructuring their academic calendars and programmes, which will have an effect on lecture dates and times, university recess breaks and examination periods.

SA Rugby is in ongoing deliberations on the reworked domestic rugby calendar and as a result, the Varsity Cup Board will reconvene towards the end of April 2020 to reassess the situation and take a final decision on the 2020 competition.

Varsity Cup will continue to engage with all stakeholders and partners to ensure that the tournament adheres to all statutory and legal obligations whilst prioritising the health and safety of players, management and spectators.

Defending champions Maties currently top the standings with five wins from five matches.
