How does registration work?

The following registration fees will be applicable:
15’s – R500 per tour member or 29 x R500 = R14500 per team
Touch – R500 per tour member 12 x R500 = R6000 per team

What happens to the registration fees?

If you decide to participate in this Festival and your tour will be arranged by Eco South Africa Sport and Travel, this registration fee will be deducted from your final payment. This payment will thus be part of your tour cost and is not an extra cost.

What happens to the registration fee if my team only wants to participate in your Festival?

This registration fee per team only participating for the 5 days of the Festival.
15’s – R1900 per tour member or 29 x R1900 = R55100 per team
Touch – R1900 per tour member or 12 x R1900 = R22800 per team
** R500 per player initial registration fee is part of the R1900 per player payment.
** The R1400 per person final registration fee will only have to be paid in 2021, as the R500 per person will secure your team’s participation

What will my team benefit then from paying a registration fee and participating?

Your team will have the same privileges, meals and matches during the 5 days of this Festival as a team arranging their tour through Eco South Africa Sport and Travel. The difference is that these teams do not have to pay a registration fee of R1900 per player.

15’s Rugby Rules

Touch Rugby Rules

  • Both teams agree in advance of a match that scrums should not be contested (with the referee’s agreement). It is standard practise for Veteran captains to agree to uncontested scrums
  • A team is unable to field a suitable front-row and requests uncontested scrums. In this case, the team requesting uncontested scrums will forfeit a player for the whole/remainder of the match.
  • For any safety reasons the referee deems that scrums should not be contested
  • Vets and Masters will have uncontested scrums by default
  • Full set of rules will be sent at the end of 2020
