Further to events that occurred at the Varsity Rugby matches on Thursday 30th March at Ashton Gate, the Varsity Board has launched an investigation with immediate effect. Footage is being reviewed to identify where offences have been committed and disciplinary measures will follow as appropriate. Whilst the investigation is ongoing, all fixtures between the two Universities, including Varsity Football, have been suspended.
The Varsity Board is the governing body for the Varsity series between the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England. It is made up of representatives of both universities and their respective students' unions.
