Report of RUGBY MATSURI PROJECT 2019 Press Conference

The children of Shibuya International Rugby Club were invited to participate in the new project “RUGBY MATSURI PROJECT 2019” sponsored by JRFU and the Rugby World Cup 2019 Organizing Committee.

The speech by Brian Christian MBE, a SIRC coach and the principal of British School in Tokyo, was followed by a speech by Marc who was the representative of the children. He spoke passionately and acted as an interpreter for the rest of interview.
In response to the question of former Japanese national representative Yuya Saito from Minato Rugby School, the children who participated raised their hands cheerfully.

What is your favorite part of rugby?
“Tackle!” was one enthusiastic response.

How do you want to boost rugby?
“I want to convey the fun of rugby and bring my friends to the ground.”
There were many other great comments made by the children at the event.

This program is a participatory program for events organized by local governments, malls and rugby teams across the country in order to further boost Japanese rugby and to promote Japanese culture to the world.

At SIRC, we participate in international children’s tournaments, hold rugby experiences, friendship matches with overseas teams, experience events with Japanese culture, and hold international exchange parties with foreigners visiting Japan in the lead up to the World Cup. We will participate in this festival with a wide range of activities!

The details of RUGBY MATSURI PROJECT 2019 are here.

As SIRC was requested to attend this press conference in a very short notice, we selected children who had the highest attendance records during the Winter season under the age of 12. We hope we will have such opportunities in the future again.
