Varsity Cup adds final team: UCLA

PROVO — UCLA has become the eighth and final team added to the Varsity Cup’s inaugural season, joining, among others, Utah and BYU in the breakaway college rugby 15s postseason competition.

“UCLA is one of the historically great American college programs, having won three national championships prior to the modern era begun in 1980, and is now on the way to returning to its former status led by Scott Stewart former Canadian International, as its head coach,” BYU head coach David Smyth said.

The feeling is mutual.

“We are extremely pleased to have added UCLA as our 8th partner and look forward to their participation at the highest level of competition this coming spring.” Stewart said. “We are delighted to be invited into the Varsity Cup and look forward to exploring how we at UCLA can do our part to assist in the growth of this elite competition in the future.”

More details on the Varsity Cup’s playoff format are being finalized and will be released shortly.
