#OspreysChallenge returns for 2019

2019 will see Ospreys in the Community and official event partners, miTour, host the Ospreys Challenge for a second time.

Following the big successof last year’s inaugural tournament, with more than 1,500 people attending and over 60 teams from Wales, England and Ireland taking part, the Ospreys Challenge will be back even bigger and better in April 2019. So make sure you sign up to be part of the action!

The 2018 action-packed weekend, run in association with miTour Sports Travel, saw both touring and local teams from U7s to U15s participating, giving teams an opportunity to take on sides they never normally would. As well as a fantastic weekend of rugby and on-field fun with thrilling games and displays of great sportsmanship, there was and will be plenty to do off the pitch too. The tournament also provides onsite catering and refreshments, entertainment, a fun zone and the chance to meet Ozzie the Osprey and Ospreys players.

The 2019 festival will be held from Friday 26th April to Monday 29th April in Bridgend. Accommodated at Parkdean Resorts Trecco Bay (U7s – U12s, older teams will be based at local hotels), arrival for teams will be Friday evening before two full days of rugby action. 

Teams above U12s will compete for trophies in the Cup and Bowl Competition and all the teams that take part will receive Ospreys medals, awarded to them by the Ospreys players, in team presentation ceremonies.

After the pool stages on Saturday, on Sunday it’s Finals Day where your team will take part in knockout matches to see who the winner of the Ospreys Challenge is. What better way is there to end your side’s rugby season?
