Teams tours and permissions. Organising a rugby tour overseas needs time, patience and organization skills. Going on tour is a fantastic way to discover a new country, a new culture, to build team spirit, morale and identity. Tours are a long-standing tradition of rugby in many countries and the best tours are usually the result of good planning and organization. You need to take into account the aim of your tour and the destination as well as the most appropriate period for your tour.
Alternatively, hosting a touring team provides an opportunity to play against new opposition and make new rugby contacts.
Schools, clubs & sports tours : when considering going on tour to France, some points need to be studied and one of them is the approval. All clubs or schools, for going on tour overseas, you will need permission from your home rugby union that is usually called the “Outgoing Tour Application form” or “Permission to tour overseas“. The Form can be obtained directly from your home rugby union and once it’s filled and completed, your club will have to get the approval of the host Rugby Union in the country you want to visit (FFR in France).
Age Groups & categories : please note that for junior rugby teams touring on the continent or Ireland, playing age categories operate on a different system to the one British clubs use in GB: where British teams use academic years, continental rules follow the calendar year (01/01 to 31/12). ComeOn Sport always ask for DOB when arranging the games.
