On 9 May, the Sports for Business Committee met at PWC’s office in Kasumigaseki to discuss exciting upcoming events surrounding the countdown for 2019’s Rugby World Cup in Japan. At the meeting, we announced that ANZCCJ will run a joint chamber event to celebrate One Year To Go in September.
Others shared about the number of opportunities arising as we get close to the big event. One such event is the upcoming Minato Rugby Festival on 17 June at Chichibu Stadium. For those who are interested in buying tickets, please email email@example.com. We had special guests from the RWC2019 Organising Committee give an update on the recent promotion events to build momentum leading up to the RWC in Japan. One of which was Tokyo City Governor Yuriko Koike who celebrated 500 days to go by unveiling a countdown clock that is now shown in the Tokyo Metropolitan Government building. Celebrations are being held in Yokohama, Sapporo, Fukuoka.
A video was played to the committee explaining the construction of the Recovery Memorial Stadium in Kamaishi and the significance this has in the community’s recovery after the devastating 2011 Tohoku earthquake. A game to open up the new stadium will take place on 19 August. The Secretariat will investigate how members of the Chamber can purchase tickets.

Please be advised that priority will be given to Chamber members where attendance space is limited, and non-RSVPs will be unable to join these meetings so do make sure you RSVP.
