We are super excited and proud to have been invited to the first World Amateur Rugby Festival taking place in France in 2023.
The World Amateur Rugby Festival will bring together 20 amateur clubs from the 20 of the world’s greatest rugby nations. For the first time in the history of the World Cup, amateur rugby will have an official place and lighting.
The first world amateur rugby tournament will take place in 7 host cities of the Southern Region, Port-de-Bouc, Saint-Maximin, Arles, Saint-Raphaël, Sisteron, Manosque, Digne-les-Bains, from September 22 to 30, during the 2023 France World Cup.
The event is a high societal challenge and ambassador of the values carried by France 2023. The Festival also pays tribute to the thousands of amateur clubs around the world that teach the passion and brotherhood of rugby.
Still aiming to promote cultural sharing, through the values of amateur rugby, Jérémy Teyssier announces that the event will be closed by “the largest third half of the history of rugby”. A way to bring together all 600 players from 20 participating countries to celebrate amateur rugby. The level will be homogeneous and the competition very contested, but in a spirit of brotherhood.
