Glyka Nera Municipal Stadium
Following the success of the 1st edition in 2007, the “XV de Gaule” Tournament is growing this year. To the “traditional” programme, which includes, as the entree, an opening game of tag-rugby with the kids of the Youth Academy of Rugby (7 to 14 years old), and, as the main event, the tournament itself with three opposing teams of Rugby XV (1), is added a game between parents and children.
Moreover, children from the Association “To Hamogelo tou Paidiou” (2) have been invited to attend this event and will participate in an initiation course to rugby conducted by experienced players.
The program will be as follows:
15:00 Kick-off – Academy game
15:20 Game parents-children
16:00 XV de Gaule Tournament (three games)
18:45 Cup Award
Refreshments will be available to spectators all day long, and a “Gaulois” banquet will be open for both spectators and players from 18:00.
