NEWS: The Cheetahs have unveiled the new jersey they will wear when they make their debut in the European Challenge Cup next month.

The Cheetahs have been invited to play in the 2022/23 EPCR Challenge Cup – together with 17 teams that qualified, from the United Rugby Championship, Top 14 and Premiership.

The participants qualify on merit and performance in their respective domestic leagues.

The Cheetahs’ Challenge Cup jersey features white hoops that contrast brightly against the team’s traditional orange, accented by piping detail in black and chevrons on the side panels.

The Cheetahs will play two matches at their European ‘home’ and two away in Pool B – against French team Section Paloise, better known as Pau, and the Scarlets from Wales.

Their two ‘home’ matches will be staged in Parma, Italy.

The six highest-ranked teams in Pool A and the six highest-ranked teams in Pool B – as well as four teams from the Champions Cup – will qualify for a Round of 16 in late March/early April 2023.
