Sports Festival 2018 Kumagaya Sports Culture Park | KUMAGAYA

May 27, 2018 @ 10:00 - 15:00

With the Rugby World Cup and 2020 olympics on the horizon, Saitama has upped its game and introduced a number of new sports festivals over the last couple of years. One such relatively new sports festivals is that of the Kumagaya Sports Culture park sports festival which has been held in one form or other for the last couple of years.

Kumagaya Sports Culture Park Sports Festival

However, this year’s May sports festival in Kumagaya Sports Culture Park is for once more about the Olympics than the rugby. The park is one of the host stadiums of the 2019 world cup rugby games and hence they have a lot of rugby related events. But this time they are offering the chance to try some Olympic sports too. For example; beam shooting, archery and golf. They will of course also have a rugby corner. There are some Olympians and Paraolympians in attendance on the day and there will be chances to either watch them at their sport, interact with them or both.  Music and dance performances are also scheduled for the day, as is the appearance of some mascots. Food booths will also be available on the day in what the city has coined the “umaimon cup” : Umaimon cup at Kumagaya sports culture park
