TROPICAL 7s announces a number of new partnerships with established international rugby tour providers to provide comprehensive and fully customisable tour packages to teams wishing to travel and participate in the tournament.
Are you a coach or team manager looking for a tour package that includes all the elements of your teams's participation in TROPICAL 7s? Or are you simply looking for additional support in organising the logistics of your team's participation on the TROPICAL 7s? Our list of preferred tour partners can provide fully bespoke tour packages which include entry into the tournament, accommodation, flights, ground transport and tourism excursions to interested teams.
All of Tropical 7s preferred rugby tour providers are experienced outbound tour operators in their respective countries and regions, namely:
Edwin Doran Sports Tours (for teams travelling from the UK and South Africa)
GB Sport Tours (for teams travelling from the UK)
Varsity Sports Tours (for teams travelling from North America & Europe)
Haka Sports Tours (for teams travelling from New Zealand & Australia)
Gira de Rugby (for teams travelling from Central & South America)
TROPICAL 7s is one of the leading youth rugby events in North America and regularly attracts international teams to the tournament. Tampa is a world-renowned tourism destination in its own right and as travel restrictions ease around the world in the wake of the global pandemic, TROPICAL 7s can broaden its appeal to international touring sides and fully realise our vision to host a rugby festival which attracts youth teams from around the world. Fields are available all week leading up to the tournament allowing for teams to conduct training sessions and host warm-up games against other touring sides prior to the 2-day tournament.
"Teams have been asking us for sometime about the availability of tour packages for the Tropical 7s and we are happy to announce partnerships with a number of specialist international rugby tour providers," said Alex Proctor-Pearson, Director and International Team Liaison. "By expanding the geographical footprint of the tournament, we can provide a unique rugby experience at the Tropical 7s that spans across different countries and rugby cultures. These new partnerships provide an opportunity for any team to play at Tropical 7s no matter what part of the world they come from."
The 2023 TROPICAL 7s takes place on 7-8 April 2023 (Friday/Saturday of Easter weekend) at the Tampa Sportsplex, Florida, USA. Teams can access the match fields from as early as Monday 3rd April for warm-up matches and training sessions.
