Bud Light Tag Rugby Expands in Leinster…
December 9, 2009 12:00 am client
The 2010 Bud Light Tag season is shaping up to be the biggest and best to date with a host of new venues already confirmed…
This is the only official IRFU tag rugby programme in Ireland and registration of teams will open on Thursday January 7th 2010 with the leagues running from May to August.
The growth of Bud Light Tag has been phenomenal and this year’s programme expects to see over 1,000 teams and 12,000 participants at 19 venues across Ireland. In Leinster, there are two very substantial additions to the venue list in St Mary’s College RFC/Templeogue College and Blackrock College, in addition to the six venues elsewhere in the province which include, Enniscorthy RFC, Mullingar RFC, Navan RFC, Old Belvedere RFC, Suttonians RFC and of course, Tallaght RFC.
IRFU Bud Light Tag Manager, Olly Hodges said: “Last year’s leagues exceeded expectations to the point that we have again expanded the number of venues, allowing for more teams and players to take part. The social aspect of TAG and its ability to attract players who may never have even set foot in a rugby club before has been not only a boost to the venue club in term of revenues, but also to the possibility of attracting new members.”
Bud Light Tag leagues cater for all levels of skill and fitness for mixed social teams, and the also the ever popular Veterans Tag (Over 33’s). With the growth of Tag Rugby, the success in spreading the popularity of the game of rugby and Tag’s non-contact nature and social aspect have made it accessible to both men and women in the specially graded levels.
Teams looking to take part can register on www.irfutag.ie or contact IRFU Leisure Rugby on firstname.lastname@example.org
Registrations open on January 7th 2010, with Team Registration Fees remaining at 2009 prices, providing great value to all participating players.
Team captains, entering player details of 10 other team members while registering also qualify for the Competition Draw. Winners receive the VIP treatment at an Ireland home game by not only receiving a pair of match tickets but invites to the official IRFU pre-match luncheon and the post-match Team Reception.
