JAPAN TOUR OVERVIEW


Ikey Tigers has been invited to defend our World University Rugby Cup title in Japan in September 2019. We have accepted this invitation and are fully intent on bringing the trophy back to South Africa for another four years. In order to make a tour like this financially possible the players and management have put in a place an ambitious fundraising plan to raise the almost R1m required (approximately R28k pp for each of the 35 travelling players and management).

Waseda University are hosting the 2019 edition and we look forward to taking on old foes Oxford University and Trinity College Dublin, as well Sydney University and a New Zealand combined universities team, among others.

Support our remarkable students to benefit from a trip that builds lifelong friendships and shapes their view of the world, themselves and their life’s potential. Plus, stand a chance to win to great prizes!
