  Rugby Tours to Spain for Schools and Clubs
 
















           Back to Home

A typical rugby tour to Spain consists of a training session on a turf or "new generation" astro pitch and 2 fixtures. The training session is usually a 2 hour morning session and helps acclimatize the players. The rugby fixtures are as follows; two games against Spanish or French opposition and one against another visiting UK team if available. Depending on the time of year, matches are played in the evening or late afternoon, leaving the day free for other activities.

The rugby fixtures are 1 hour long, with rolling subs so everybody gets time to play. Age groups and pitch dimensions are those stipulated by the Federacio Catalana de Rugby. Referees are officials from the Collegi de Arbitros de Rugby and you are sometimes required to help as touch judges. In the case of a player being sent off, another player is allowed to take his or her place.

Matches are played against local clubs. The rugby fixtures are usually in the Barcelona area, although sometimes we visit French rugby clubs just across the border. The local clubs act as hosts.

Rugby matches between English teams are played on pitches in Girona, the local capital. Schools and clubs should apply to their relative rugby associations for permission to play abroad. This ensures that the matches are regarded as official by both countries. We recommend that you bring a pennant or other souvenir of your rugby club to give to the opposition.
