23-25 June 2017 will see Krakow play host to the second annual Krakow Rugby Festival, which is a social rugby tournament hosted jointly by our sister company Sports Tours Poland, specialists in organising rugby tours, and Juvenia Krakow Rugby Club. It promises to be an epic weekend of great rugby and even greater socialising, with a number of different activities planned as part of the event. If you’re looking for one of the best top rugby tours in 2017 then this is certainly the event for you. Whether you’re a decent rugby team, or just a group of mates wanting to get together for a one off tournament then this is perfect for you.
The 2016 edition was a great success, as teams from the UK, France, and Poland came together to compete in a 10 aside tournament at Juvenia Rugby Club. And 2017 promises to be even better with more teams, more beer, more food, and most importantly even more fun. For the first time there will also be a women’s tournament taking place at the same time, again with teams from all over Europe and even further afield coming to compete.
The festivities begin on the Friday when the teams will be arriving throughout the day, before heading off for the opening party in the evening. This takes place at a centrally located bar where there will be live music, as well as the option for an open bar.
The rugby then begins on the Saturday morning with the commencement of the group matches for both the men’s and women’s tournaments. After the day’s rugby there’s a chance to go back to the accommodation and get your glad rags on before hitting the town for the gala dinner, with plenty of food and of course beer in a trendy central restaurant.
Sunday sees the final matches taking place, with a big pitch-side party to follow which is the perfect way to round off the weekend and what will have no doubt been one of the best rugby tours you have ever experienced.
If you’re interested in coming to join the Krakow Rugby Festival 2017 then prices start from just 179 GBP / pp for a package that includes accommodation, tournament entry, three parties including the gala dinner, three meals pitch-side, as well as a tournament t-shirt.
