There are lots of ways that clubs, schools, community groups and individuals can get involved, whether it’s participating in the educational and cultural programmes (including lesson plans and a young reporter competition) or the pre-tournament build-up events which include the trophy tour and twelve team welcome ceremonies.
The participating nations have selected their team bases across the region, including twelve community rugby clubs for training grounds. We are encouraging schools to ‘adopt a team’ with the chance to play a starring role at the team’s Welcome Ceremony or on match days.
Community festivals will take place at both stadiums on match days, and our Legacy team will be running various programmes – targeting a broad range of ages and skills.
For budding rugby journalists, we've got the Future Stars of Rugby reporting competition. Do you know someone who dreams of a career in sports journalism? Do they know their ruck from your maul, drop kick from a conversion, a line-out from a scrum? Then enter our competition here!
Those engaged in one or more of the above activities will also be able to tap into a range of opportunities for youngsters to play a direct role on match days: for example, as ball and flag carriers, or as part of the official Guard of Honour to welcome each team into the stadium.
If you would like to find out more information on all the opportunities available, please download one of our How to Get Involved guides for clubs and schools according to where you are located.
