Stellenbosch to host 2019 World Schools Rugby Festival at PRG

Stellenbosch will host the highly successful World Schools Festival at Paul Roos Gymnasium.

The festival will be held from 25 to 30 March 2019.

The international schoolboy rugby festival event will again feature 10 of the top rugby playing schools in South Africa and 10 of the best teams from around the world.

“We are delighted and proud to host the second edition of this exciting rugby festival, and look forward to welcoming the world’s most promising young rugby players to Paul Roos Gymnasium,” says the Rector of Paul Roos Gymnasium, André van Staden.

“We believe in the ethos of the World Schools Festival and in the true spirit of rugby,” he added. “Paul Roos has a long tradition of promoting the values of the sport.

“I am excited to see the developments for next year’s World Schools Festival. We started this event because we felt it can make a difference, and we saw the impact of this year’s event in Paarl. It also showcased what amazing talent we have in South Africa.

“I am looking forward to the 2019 Festival growing at Paul Roos and in the years to come,” said Heyneke Meyer, who was at the helm of event owners Carinat Sports Marketing in South Africa when the 2018 festival took place, and will continue to support its growth and development.

“We were very pleased with the success of inaugural World Schools Festival event earlier this year, and are very excited by the response of the overseas teams that have already expressed interest in participating in 2019. They are all very eager to be part of the Rest of The World team taking on the SA Schools in the Ryder Cup-style competition which was implemented in 2018.”

“The tournament gives talented young players an opportunity to measure themselves at the highest level in their age group,” says Jon Phelps, founding partner of Carinat Sports Marketing.

“And 2019 will take that to another level, as the overseas teams will come more prepared to the level they need to be to compete against the superb SA Schools.”

The international schools taking part will be announced closer to the event.

“We are now working with Paul Roos to finalise the invite list for the South African schools, a process that forms part of the partnership agreement with the host school,” Phelps says, “and we look forward to making the field announcement soon.”

The World Schools Festival embodies the spirit of rugby and traditional values and is the best global gathering of schoolboy talent.
