The JRFU Extends its Condolences Following the Noto Peninsula Earthquake

The Japan Rugby Football Union extends its heartfelt condolences and support to all those affected by the recent Noto Peninsula Earthquake on New Year’s Day. Our deepest sympathies go to the families and communities mourning the loss of their loved ones, as well as to those who have been injured in the wake of this tragic event.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the safety and well-being of all individuals in the affected areas, and we express our profound respect and gratitude to those engaged in the ongoing relief effort.

On behalf of the Japan rugby family, the JRFU will donate part of the proceeds from ticket sales for the finals of the 60th National University Rugby Football Championship to the Noto Peninsula 2024 Earthquake relief effort. This includes the semi-finals which took place on January 2, and the final which will take place on January 13.

The JRFU will strive to do all it can to support those dealing with the aftermath of this tragedy to assist them in resuming their normal lives as quickly as possible.
