Rugby Tours for Armed Forces Teams

We have a rich history of arranging rugby tours for Armed Forces teams, with some of our first tours abroad being for rugby teams of the British Military. Since then we have organised dozens of sports tours for military teams to some of the world’s best rugby destinations. Our knowledge and experience is unsurpassed, and we understand all of the complexities involved in Armed Forces teams arranging to travel and tour. We would be delighted to pass on our expertise to provide the best possible tour for your team.

We know that every tour is different so we will select your accommodation and fixtures specifically for your group. That might be a centrally located hostel in the heart of the action, or a quite hotel on the outskirts of town.

Our long history of arranging rugby tours abroad means we have extensive links with clubs all over the world. We pride ourselves on working with some of the most hospitable and welcoming rugby clubs, so you are sure to be well looked after. We aim to match your opposition to your level, and tour type.  Whether that it is a social tour where the post match beers are more important than the score, a rugby tournament or festival with plenty of rugby and fancy dress, or a tough end of season hit. We will also happily work with you to integrate matches with Defence Force, or Military teams in your destination of choice should you have established links.

Let us take care of all the organisational stress and allow you, as the organisers to relax and enjoy your rugby tour. From fixture planning to booking day trips and team meals, we will work with you to arrange each element of your tour to the highest standard.

Our team have personally visited a number of the rugby destinations available to you and will be more than happy to provide detailed information and answer any questions you may have. We can recommend the best bars and clubs to visit on a night out to local restaurants and attractions. Our local knowledge will ensure we pick the right destination for your tour and make sure you are thoroughly prepared when you get there.

For that little something extra we can suggest and arrange those special tour moments, be it climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge in Australia, visiting the Battle Fields of Northern Natal in South Africa or the War Cemeteries of Belgium and France. We know it’s that little bit extra that makes touring memories stay with you beyond your rugby playing days.

Military Sports Tours

Our first Military sports tours left our shores way back in 1998 with REME RFC visiting Portugal and RAF Cottesmore RFC travelling to Spain. Since then we have organised numerous tours for military teams and have built up a vast amount of knowledge about what is required to ensure they run smoothly; both during the lead up to the tour and whilst you are away.
