Statement regarding discontinuation of Steinhoff International sponsorship of FNB Varsity Cup

FNB Varsity Cup

Varsity Cup management can confirm that Steinhoff International has withdrawn as a second tier sponsor of the annual FNB Varsity Cup tournament. Subsequently, we have 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.

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 FNB Varsity Cup tournament will continue as planned, including FNB Varsity Cup, FNB Varsity Shield, FNB Young Guns and FNB Koshuis Rugby.

The media launch of the FNB Varsity Cup 2018 will take place on Tuesday, 23 January at 10:30 am at the FNB Conference Centre in Sandton.
