Royal Bank of Scotland Scottish Varsity Matches

The Royal Bank of Scotland Scottish Varsity Matches will return to take centre stage on the international pitch at BT Murrayfield on Saturday 23th September 2017.

The ancient rivalry of the two clubs has seen an excess of 10,000 people flock to the stands in the 2015 and 2016 encounters.

St Andrews men have claimed the honours for the last four years – with the 2013 and 2014 games played in London – whereas the Edinburgh women have won all their Varsity fixtures.

The event is supported by Royal Bank of Scotland and run in partnership with PlayerLayer, Stagecoach and Campus Living Villages.
