Union Cup

The Society has already offered to provide match officials for the Union Cup, to be played in Birmingham on the weekend April 30th May to 2nd.

In view of Covid-19 it was pleasing to read the latest newspaper report.

INCLUSIVE Rugby was given a huge boost this week when Birmingham Bulls RFC confirmed the Union Cup – Europe’s premier LGBTQ+ tournament – is to not only go ahead in Birmingham in May 2021, but has garnered support from Welsh international rugby legend Gareth Thomas.

The Union Cup 2021 will see upward of 60 LGBTQ+ rugby teams from more than 18 countries battle it out in the Second City over the weekend of April 30-May 2.

Birmingham is the ninth host city of the cup and organisers expect to build on the legacy from the Dublin tournament in 2019 which attracted record crowds and was delivered with great acclaim within the wider community.

Alistair Burford, tournament director for Union Cup 2021, commented: “Birmingham Bulls RFC is thrilled to be the host club for the upcoming Union Cup 2021 in Birmingham. With COVID-19 prompting the postponement of the Bingham Cup until 2022, all eyes will be on the Union Cup 2021.

Webinars

  1. Great idea on the webinars. If they can be made available as a video file after the event somehow, I can store them permanently on the website for future access in the members area
