Yes, you got that right.. it is time!

The club is delighted to announce this year’s Murphy’s Misfits Charity Touch Rugby Tournament, the XIVth one in a row. It is in the middle of the autumn and temperatures are falling, but the heat on the rugby pitch will be rising. Once more we will bring together players, fans and adventurers of all kinds for a full day of rugby and fun with a noble cause.

The cause

This year we chose to work with the ParaKids Organization and collect funds to support their great initiative. ParaKids work with children with disabilities, postural problems and obesity by offering swimming and ski classes, gymnastics and sports camps. Their goal is to acquire specialized equipment for adapted sport, with which children with disabilities will have an access to different types of sports activities. ParaKids, as well as the Misfits, firmly believe that every child is entitled to year-round access to games and sports among friends. Rugby being one of the most social and tolerant communities in the world is the perfect match for such cause.

Tournament organization

This year’s competing teams will be formed on the day with the exception of major sponsors that have the right to field their own premade lineups. During the registration phase, team captains appointed by the club will lead touch rugby turbo workshops in order to teach all newcomers the rules and the basics of our sport. At the same time, there will be kids rugby workshop with the ParaKids members and visitor kids.

Everyone is eligible for participation in the tournament no matter of rugby skill, fitness level, age or gender.  Due to safety reasons, there is a minimum age requirement – 12 yo (all underage participants must have an attendant).

Besides the tons of fun, every player will get a complimentary t-shirt with a special design. There will be a minimum entry fee of 15 lv. Please, keep in mind this is a charity event and 100% of your entry fee will be donated – the more the better.

Volunteers will serve foods and drinks around the venue and all the revenue will be donated, as well.
