Armistice Rugby Festival

Date: 22 Oct 2020 - 24 Oct 2020

Time: 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Location: Compiègne

The Armistice Youth Rugby Festival remains open for the registration of teams.

The latest edition of the Armistice Youth Rugby Festival will take place in Compiegne, France during October.

The Festival has established itself as a premier event with a reputation for a good standard of sport along with educational values and a focus on remembrance.

In 2020 the plan is to increase participation by introducing a 7’s competition for girls at U16 and U18 age groups, while retaining the 15-a-side format for boys in the same age groups. With the expansion to the Festival the rugby will take place over 2 days.

The popular feature of a training session with the RDJ Sports from South Africa has been retained, and an addition this year there will be a “Train the Trainer” session for visiting coaches.

Post World Cup in Japan the game of rugby has seen an increase in awareness and participation. At Francourt Events we are looking forward to Rugby World Cup 2023 in France by developing this festival further with an enhanced plan over the next four years with our partners the City of Compiegne, RCC Compiegne and FFR.
