Currie Cup History

The Currie Cup is South Africa's premier domestic competition, and is normally played from June to October.

It had it's beginnings when the first overseas touring team came to South Africa in 1891, they brought with them a trophy, the Currie Cup, named after Donald Currie, the owner of the shipping line that transported the visiting team to South Africa. It was to be awarded to the team which played best against them, and it turned out to be Griqualand West that year.

The next year, 1892, saw the first Currie Cup tournament in Kimberley, but the first final was only played in 1939, and it's only been an annual competition since 1968.
