Varsity Football kicks off on 27 July 2017 and it’s going to be Iyachesa!
The fifth season of Varsity Football is just over a month away, and keeping with the same theme, #Iyachesa (which loosely translates to “it’s hot” in any Nguni language), this year’s edition of Varsity Football promises to be just that: HOT!
The much-anticipated Varsity Football action kicks off on 27 July 2017 at 16h00, with Central University of Technology (CUT) hosting University of Johannesburg (UJ) at the CUT Stadium. Defending champions, Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) will host neighbours, University of Pretoria (UP-Tuks) in the Pretoria derby at 18h15.
Both fixtures will be broadcast live on SuperSport 4.
The two non-broadcast matches will both kick off at 18h30 with University of Fort Hare (UFH) hosting NWU-Mafikeng at the Davidson Stadium, and University of Western Cape (UWC) hosting Wits University at the UWC Stadium.
“We are extremely excited for this year’s Varsity Football tournament to kick off,” says Varsity Football Manager, Xhanti-Lomzi Nesi. “The 2016 season delivered on its promise of action-packed gameplay, and saw Tshwane University of Technology walk away with both the Men’s and Women’s Varsity Football titles. This year, we look forward to seeing the new game changers and stars who will emerge from our tournament.”
