Welcome to the 23d St John’s College Easter Rugby Festival, proudly sponsored by Standard Bank.
The St John’s College Easter Rugby Festival has become a feature on the South African schoolboy sports calendar and are eagerly anticipated by the players, coaches and many spectators. Festivals mean that there are no final logs, winner’s medals or trophies to be awarded: the emphasis is purely on the enjoyment of the game.
This year we have 12 College and 12 Prep teams from across South Africa and beyond our borders coming to the St John’s College Easter Rugby Festival to enjoy the spirit of the game.
There is plenty on offer for the whole family with a kids play area, tea garden, gourmet food trucks and bar plus The ITEC Deck which overlooks Burger Field.
There is live entertainment on Thursday and Saturday evening after the games. Thursday night features Dan Vee and Bad Peter with Jayrad Smith and Lonehill Estate on Saturday.
The Festival will once again be ‘cashless’ with Tap & Go cards available for purchase from Standard Bank and Snapscan payment terminals. Vendors will also accept credit and debit cards.
We wish all the players a fantastic weekend as we celebrate the best in schoolboy rugby.
