Are you ready for the Ospreys Challenge?

By Ospreys in the Community | 14/09/2017

The exciting new tournament, run in partnership with official event partners miTour, will be held in Porthcawl next April.

The Ospreys Challenge is coming, will your team be a part of it? 

Next April will see Ospreys in the Community and official community event partners, miTour, host the first Ospreys Challenge Rugby Festival in Porthcawl. Open to mini and junior teams worldwide, the inaugural festival will be held from Friday 13th April to Monday 16th April 2018 and more than 80 teams are expected to attend.

Accommodated at Parkdean Resorts Trecco Bay (U7’s – U12’s, older teams will be based at local hotels), arrival for the teams will be Friday evening before two full days of rugby action. After the pool stages on Saturday, on Sunday it's finals day where your team will take part in knockout matches to see who is the winner of the Ospreys Challenge. Depending on your side’s placement in the group stages you will take part in either the Waterfall Competition, the Cup, Bowl or Shield, ensuring teams play against a team of equal ability.

As well as the on-field fun, there will be plenty to do off-field too, with onsite catering and refreshments, entertainment, inflatable fun zone and the chance to meet Ozzie, the Ospreys mascot.

All teams that take part will also receive Ospreys medals, given to them by Ospreys players in team presentation ceremonies. What better way is there to end your side’s rugby season?
