About Crowd Funding
Bringing local kids to enjoy the WURIT 2019!
There are still 4 days left!!!
After hitting our first goal of 5,000,000 yen thanks to all our backers, we have been moving towards our second goal of 6,500,000 yen!
We have raised 5,903,000 yen so far!
If we reach this second goal we will have enough money raised to bring the children not only for training sessions with the players but also bring them to watch first hand rugby matches at the Kami Igusa grounds!! They will get to see the strength and passion from the international students as they see with their own eyes rugby on the world stage!
We hope that you can help make this goal a realisation for us!!

In 2015, to coincide with the Rugby World Cup being held in England, Oxford University held the first ever World University Rugby Invitation Tournament (WURIT). It was intended to inspire and bring the significance of rugby at the university level to the foreground, showing off its significance to the world, as well as paving the way for a new age of not only university rugby but sport in general.
In September 2019, after taking the torch from Oxford University, Waseda University will hold the next World University Rugby Invitation Tournament! This will also coincide with the Rugby World Cup being held in Tokyo next year! In order to create a tournament that will help unite all the universities together, we will be putting our all into this!
