The new sport of KigoH was created by Pieter Erasmus of South Africa in May 2017 (originally called Top Kickers). This sport involves teams kicking goals on a normal Rugby ground.
Equipment Required: Normal ruby ball, rugby boots and a goal post.
The team consists of 15 players that have to kick from 15 set points on a Rugby field. All successful kicks get added up and the team with the most points win the tournament. The goal is to get the top kickers to compete in tournaments like the IPL t20 cricket. The set points are from 22m, 35m and 50m goal lines. The formats are normal time and quick time kicking. 5 kickers kick goal from each line and the best kicker in the world gets the Title.
There will be singles where one player kicks from all 15 set locations. 5 team where 5 kickers kick from the three goal lines and last will be 15 kickers kicking from chosen locations. Also done in normal and quick time. Normal time and quick time can be from 5 minutes to 2.5 minutes for various formats.
Teams compete against each other and points per tournament gets added until the end of the tournament and the best team gets Championship trophy and prize money.
This game can be played on various levels namely: school, club, national and international level. The reason for this is to determine who the best individual or team kickers exist in the world today.
