The milestone game of the rivalry between powerhouse Japanese Universities Waseda and Keio is scheduled to be played this month in Blacktown, Sydney!
Over a century ago Japanese Universities, Waseda and Keio, challenged each other for the first time establishing a rivalry that has extended over generations.
The Waseda and Keio rivalry began way back in 1903! Known as the “sokei-sen,” this game is one of the pinnacles of Japanese university sports and the ultimate experience for many that attend the institutions. The two teams will be travelling to Sydney to celebrate the continuation of over 100 years battling for victory.
Baseball NSW are extremely excited to be working with Baseball Australia to put on the showcase game at Blacktown International Sportspark on Saturday the 25th of November.
The game will be open to all, with gates opening at 5:30pm. There will be a brief presentation from Japanese dignitaries and the game will begin shortly after. The match offers a unique opportunity to celebrate in Japanese university baseball history. You don’t want to miss it!
Tickets to the event are free and the canteen and bar will be available on the night. With such a rich history surrounding their competition, we invite all baseball lovers to attend. Baseball NSW can’t wait to see everyone out at Blacktown International Sportspark for this exciting event!
