Toyota Cheetahs Name Touring Squad For Round 1 of 2023/24 EPCR Challenge Cup


The Toyota Cheetahs will be travelling to Parma for their first match of the 2023/24 EPCR Challenge Cup against Zebre Parma.  The match in Italy kicks off at 15:00 (SA time) on Saturday.

They will return to South Africa for Round 2 against the Sharks on Sunday, 17 December in Toyota Stadium in Bloemfontein before the Christmas break. The Toyota Cheetahs will host Section Paloise at the NRCA Stadium in Amsterdam on Sunday, 14 January and play against Oyonnax to round off their pool stage fixtures on 20 January 2024 in Oyonnax, France.

One of the EPCR’s conditions for the Toyota Cheetahs' participation in the 2023/24 EPCR Challenge Cup was for the team to be based in Europe and they will therefore be playing the Round 3 home game on 14 January against Section Paloise at the NRCA Stadium in Amsterdam.
