The Annual Kruisfontein Rugby Festival will take place on saturday 7 November 2015 in Humansdorp. This one day tournament have managed to attract a strong group of teams that play in the EPRU Grandchallenge and Shield competitions. Teams like Trying stars, Gardens and African Bombers will make their debuts at the festival.
Two local Junior teams will open procedings at 8pm before the senior matches start at 9pm. We have also provided a slot for a legends game just before the final game of the day.
The Festival will be played in a knockout format. Spring Rose RFC is the defending champions having narrowly beaten Progress in the final last year.
Tournament Director, Elton Juba, had this to say about the festival, “We are planing a media launch and draw for friday 23 October, Representatives of the respected teams and various media houses will be invited to the launch and draw. We are hoping to have Grassroots there too. However we will provide more detail about the launch within the next few days”.
“We have managed to partner with Woodlands Dairy again, who will act as our main sponsor. We also managed to secure the services of South African Breweries (SAB) for the day. We are confident that they will add even more value to the event” said Juba.
We do not charge affiliation fees. Clubs are encouraged to bring their best teams to the festival as R 20 000 is up for grabs. Spectators can expect some really good running games.
Teams should are reminded that all matches will start at scheduled times and failure to arrive on time will result in teams losing points.
