Lagos hosts third edition of beach rugby competition


The bi-annual Lagos Beach Rugby Competition took place again on the sandy beaches of Hardrock Café in Oniru on Saturday 17th November 2018.

The Lagos Beach Rugby in its 3rd Edition was set up by fans of the game to bring tourism and sport together.

The format features 8 teams in a 3 on 3 touch rugby competition which includes rolling substitutes. Each team has a corporate sponsor which brings competition and rivalry to the tournament giving bragging rights to the eventual winning team and sponsor. In our November 3rd Edition, the tournament was won by team ‘Wolf Pack’ a team consisting of the mixed team of everyday professionals and executives. They beat team Las Esqueletos in extra time to eventually win 35-25. Both teams had previously met in the group stages but Wolf Pack were able to turn around the result in the final and lift the coveted Lagos Beach Rugby Cup.

It was another great day full of fast running and exciting rugby. The Lagos Beach Team were able to bring the expat, diaspora and local community together in teams that consisted of amateurs and some old semi – professional’s players. With an amazing view of the Atlantic, Lagos beach rugby fans were able to enjoy an amazing day at Hard Rock Cafe beach, having great food, ice cold drinks whilst watching live international rugby on the big screen.

With the next tournament to take place in March 2019. This will be the St Patricks Day Special. Any company that is keen to have a team representing them in a touch rugby competition would be required to email
