Everyone is looking forward to the FIFA Championship, but it is not the only international sport event hosted by Russia in 2018. This spring the best rugby teams from Russia, France, Georgia, Sweden, Ireland, Portugal and Poland will compete on the stadiums of Moscow and St. Petersburg. Rugby Sevens reminds of the usual rugby invented in Scotland but with several changes. As its name suggests, the game is played by seven players in each team with seven minute halves. Rugby Europe Sevens Championships are organized by Rugby Europe Union which was formed in 1999. In spite of its "young age" the tournament is gaining popularity in Russia as well as worldwide. This year it will turn into a two-day festival with a slogan "Rugby is for everyone". It will have a specifically organized tournaments between visitors. So even the most nonathletic participant will be able to learn the basic rules of the game, play it with others and probably even win.
The festival theme also excellently fits our viewpoint to such games: the main rule of every team sport is to enjoy oneself and take satisfaction from the winning result of working together as a union without being an athlete. Rugby matches can be organized for your incentive trip in your visit to Moscow or Saint Petersburg. #russkieprostori DMC will be professional for you in assisting with your team-building programs so you will be able to enjoy elite sports without being a professional athlete.
