This event is the culminating tournament for the season and will feature 72 teams and 900 players participating in a one day tournament. The theme of the event is Premiership Rugby, the world’s foremost domestic rugby competition based in England.

Hope For The Warriors® will also be partnering on the event, providing a service component for the children.

Adding to the military presence at the event, West Point Rugby is partnering with Play Rugby USA to offer afternoon activities to schools eliminated from the competition, run by cadets.
