Over 300 matches will be played between international youth rugby teams over two days at the Lisbon University Stadium, the festival’s fantastic venue. Taking place on 9th and 10th April, 2022 will mark the 14th edition of this great tournament.
Portugal Rugby Youth Festival attracts teams from all over the world competing with each other over a weekend of great rugby and entertainment in a friendly environment.
The format of the tournament is designed so teams can test themselves in competitive matches against international opponents. The tournament is played according to WR Youth Rugby Rules.
Each team plays three matches on the first day of the competition, while the play-off groups and finals are played on Sunday. The format may be adjusted to make sure every team plays a minimum of 5 games during the festival weekend.
Rugby coaches will also have time to exchange ideas and enjoy a good rugby chat with other international coaches at the Coaches Corner.
