The Rugged Rugby Tour takes everything fans love about the sport and combines it with an all-day festival experience like no other. Think of the Vans Warp Tour or the original ESPN X-Games, but with bone-crunching action taking place right in front of your very eyes. That is exactly what you will get with the Rugged Rugby Tour.
It isn’t just existing rugby fans that will love this unique, one of a kind sporting experience. No matter what your knowledge or background in rugby is, the Rugged Rugby Tour is a great way to spend a day.
The debut Rugged Rugby Tour, kicking off in 2018, will visit three fantastic stops. Florida, Colorado and New Mexico will host the live music and sports platform; and fans from all over the world will descend on the events. Fans will get to see some of the top rugby players in the world competing at this year’s rugby festival. Local, regional and international stars of the game will be present to exhibit their top-class skills.
Florida will be the first port of call on this year’s tour. Teams, musicians and fans will convene on Wellington, Florida at the International Polo Club on May 12th. Tickets to the eight-hour rugby festival start at just $25 for general admission.
What can I expect during the day at the Rugged Rugby Tour?
A general admission ticket will provide rugby supporters with an unbelievable, all-day experience. The rugby festival starts at 11 a.m. with a tailgate pre-party. Attendees can get started with some food and drink while meeting some of the other great fans in attendance. At 1 p.m., the rugby matches begin. Fans will see two rugby matches and all of the bone crunching, exhilarating action the sport produces. Once the matches wrap-up, fans can engage with the players at the post-match meet and greet. It is a great way to meet these fantastic athletes, and something you won’t see Major League Baseball, the NFL or NBA do with its fans. Finally, the music gets cranked up at 5 p.m., and fans can sing the night away with a two-hour concert from some major movers and shakers in the music industry.
Kids under-18 can get into the Rugged Rugby Tour events for free. All they have to do is bring a non-perishable food item to donate to charity. For under-18s that forget their item to donate, it will only cost them $10 on the day of the rugby festival.
There is also a VIP Reserved Box package rugby fans can purchase. The VIP Reserved Box package offers an open bar during the rugby matches, premium seating, a wait staff and much more. The Rugged Rugby Tour also offers a VIP Access Experience and Terrace Seating package option. There is truly something for everyone when the Rugged Rugby Tour rolls through a city near you.
