Varsity Cup celebrates ten years

2017-01-25 06:03

The 2017 edition of the FNB Varsity Cup presented by Steinhoff Internatio­nal gets underway on 30 January.

The competition celebrates ten years of rugby as nine universities battle it out for top honours.

Tournament organisers have been working closely with each university and their respective vice chancellors, not only ensuring the completion of fixtures, but more importantly recogni­sing and acknowledging the challenges that universities are facing.

“The excitement of the tenth season is tangible among universities,” says Duitser Bosman, Varsity Cup CEO.

“Varsity Cup understands the challenges that universities across the country are facing. Contingency measurements have been put in place by each university after lengthy discussions with each vice chancellor. The universities have been very helpful and accommodating.”

The addition of a ninth university, FNB Wits, sees the 2017 tournament kicking off a bit earlier than before.
