Hilversum International Youth Rugby Festival – The Netherlands

Fri 29th Mar – Mon 1st Apr 2024 with packages from £485

If you’re looking for a well-established festival with deep roots in the European rugby scene, where over 80 teams attend each year from the UK and Northern Europe, Hilversum International Youth Rugby Festival is right up there with the best.

U7-U17 boys teams are welcomed (with a league format under IRB rules) where a cracking festival atmosphere is created by the host, Hilversum RFC. There’s food, drinks, lots of pitches and accommodation can be either located in nearby Amsterdam or Center Parcs.

Top Tip: Amsterdam is around 20-30 minutes by train or car – so you can fully explore Holland’s capital when away from the pitch.

France RWC Legacy

Fri 29th Mar – Mon 1st Apr 2024 with packages from £485

Welcome to the Rugby World Cup Legacy in France! This festival aims to build on the international impact the upcoming 2023 World Cup will inevitably bring!

Taking place in March 2024 outside Lille, you’ll be tracing the steps of the English national team as it’s where they’ll be based during the RWC. And to give a true international tournament feel – much like the World Cup – spots offered to teams from each country will be limited.

An under 14 event not to be missed and a real taste of international rugby!

Top Tip: Aiming to develop the legacy left by the RWC 2023, pro coaching is included in your package and takes place the day before the tournament.
