Varsity Cup and Steinhoff part ways

Varsity Cup management can confirmed this week that Steinhoff International has withdrawn as a second tier sponsor of the annual Varsity Cup tournament.

Duitser Bosman, CEO of Varsity Cup, said that they have already begun a process of exploring alternative sponsorship opportunities to sustain the spotlight on talent development.

“We would like to assure spectators that preparations for the 2018 tournament are at an advanced stage and we are working with all our partners to ensure the success of this year’s competition, which kicks off on Monday, 29 January,” said Bosman.

The 11th edition of SA’s premier inter-varsity rugby competition features 16 of SA’s best university teams in a challenge for top honours on the rugby field.

All four competitions in the Varsity Cup tournament will continue as planned, including Varsity Cup, Varsity Shield, Young Guns and Koshuis Rugby.
