Wolfpack Tag Rugby Festival - Saturday 28th April
The team at Try Tag Rugby is pleased to announce the introduction of the Wolfpack Tag Rugby Festival, to be held on Saturday 28th April.
The Wolfpack Tag Rugby Festival is a unique four-hour Tag Rugby tournament that includes 10 tickets per team to the Toronto Wolfpack vs Halifax Rugby League Championship match after the tournament, to make for a fun filled social day out for your team. This tournament will be capped at 28 teams.
The Toronto Wolfpack are the world’s first professional transatlantic sports team and they play in the Championship division (2nd tier) of the Rugby Football League. They have moved their round 12 home fixture to London as their stadium in Toronto is undergoing renovations.
The Wolfpack Tag Rugby Festival will kick off at 1.30pm and run until 5.30pm and will take place at the Perth Road Rugby pitches (opposite New River Sports Stadium) in Wood Green.
If your team are playing in a Saturday league and you’d like to play in this tournament, you can request a 1.45pm kick off to allow for more time to get to the venue.
Afterwards, all players will be able to access the New River Sports gym changing/shower facilities across the road to freshen up and then fasten yourself in for some hard hitting Rugby action.
There will also be a 10-minute exhibition Tag Rugby match taking place at half-time (7.15pm) between London Canada vs London England. Both sides will feature a professional Rugby League player that is not involved in the match squad.
If you would like to take part in this match, please register here (please note there is a nominal £1 fee to enter this part of the event). We want to look as professional as possible for the exhibition match so official Try Tag Rugby Canada and England jerseys or singlets must be worn. Allocations will be given on a first to register basis.
Note: The deadline to place your order for any Try Tag Rugby Canada or England items will be by midday, Friday 23rd March.
Former Great Britain Head Coach, Brian Noble MBE will be on hand to present the awards alongside some Toronto Wolfpack players.
Teams will play in the 7-a-side mixed format (4 males & 3 females on the pitch) using standard Try Tag Rugby rules. All teams will receive a minimum of 72 minutes game time throughout the tournament.
Teams will start with a pool phase. We will then break away into tiers depending on each team's standings after the pool phase, to ensure your team are playing against similar standard opposition and make for more enjoyable matches throughout the day.
Players will only be allowed to participate in one team throughout the day.
To ensure your team is graded correctly, please ensure that your squad list is up to date in the system by the registration deadline of 5pm Tuesday 24th April.
If your festival team is significantly stronger or weaker than your usual weekly team but you will be using the same team name, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know before we grade and seed the teams.
For long running teams with a slightly different squad to normal, we strongly recommend you set-up a “Festival” version of your team within our system by registering a new team, so that you can just include your players taking part on the day.
To further help us grade your team correctly; we have set-up three alternative levels you can register for.
Advanced - For A grade standard teams
Intermediate - For intermediate teams
Beginner - For new or inexperienced teams
Please note, this is just to help us get an indication as to the strength of your team. The exact structure of the festival and gradings will be determined once we assess the strength of the teams registered.
Note: Please be aware that there is a talent cap in place for this festival, which may affect your team. For more details, click here.
Team entry costs £195 per team (includes 10 tickets for the match, valued at £15 per ticket)
Individual entry costs £24 (includes one ticket for the match, valued at £15)
If you don’t have a team, Try Tag Rugby also accepts individual registrations, where we will place you in a team. If you've only got part of a team available please email email@example.com and we can not only help you find extra players, but also quote you a reasonable part-team price.
Registration is open to whole teams, part-teams and individual players who'd like to be placed in a team. Team places are allocated on a first to pay the deposit basis.
Registration closes midday, Tuesday 24th April, however please note that capacity is limited to 28 teams so the event may sell-out before the registration deadline.
All team registrations are not confirmed until a deposit payment of £100 has been paid. For players registering individually, your place is not confirmed until the full registration fee has been paid.
NOTE: Try Tag Rugby reserves the right to grade your team accordingly. To give us the best judgement, please make sure your squad list is up to date in the Try Tag Rugby system by 5pm, Tuesday 24th April.
Try Tag Rugby have released some limited edition Toronto Wolfpack Tag Rugby shorts (£16) and tights (£26) to commemorate the partnership between the two organisations.
