Just 1000 days to go for the World Cup

A 1000 days. 

Its a rather large figure, but then at the same time, it doesn’t feel that much when you watch the news and they talk about millions, billions and even trillions.

1000, is a large, yet small number. 

For me, its a symbolic day to help focus me in my challenge to arrange my trip to Japan, where I hope to not only watch some great rugby, but immerse myself in the culture of Japan and also meet other transplant patients in Japan and learn from their experiences. Whatever happens in the next 1000 days, it’s going to be an adventure.

So what’s happening next year in preparation for the world cup?

  • Early in 2017, the network of world-class team camps will be selected.
  • The pool draw in Kyoto in May will determine the key match-ups that fans will be talking about, triggering the match schedule and ticketing. I’ll need to be prepared to book my tickets!
  • The famous Tokyo Tower being lit up in the Rugby World Cup 2019 colours.
  • The countdown clock in Kamaishi will be unveiled.
  • A tag rugby festival in Saitama, a photo exhibition in Oita and several promotional activities at Top League matches in Shizuoka, Aichi and Fukuoka will be launched.
