Legends Rugby Festival returns to Wimbledon in 2014
Today, Legends Rugby announced its 2014 festival will take place at Wimbledon RFC on 12th July. With over half of the AVIVA Premiership’s teams signed up to enter a Legends team, the festival will see 2013 champions Saracens RFC defending their title.
Last year’s festival hosted over 3,000 people and as tickets go on sale today www.eventbrite.co.uk the event is set to again stir demand from rugby fans and their families. The Wasps, London Irish, Bristol, Saracens, Leicester Tigers, Worcester and Gloucester have already confirmed they’ll be taking part, with more premiership clubs to be announced soon.
Legends Rugby director Ian Dawson adds: “We weren’t surprised by the 2013 festival as we know from the popularity in Dubai and Hong Kong that there is a real appetite in the UK for Legends Rugby – not only from the fans but the players too. We’re lucky to have the support of some of the game’s most famous players across the years, and are looking forward to 2014 being even bigger and better.”
Money raised from tickets sales will once again go to The Tag Rugby Trust. More details to be announced in the coming weeks including additional Premiership Legends teams and the off-pitch headline act – which last summer saw UB40 rocking the night away!
