USA Rugby and first-rate international rugby tour and ticket provider, Venatour, are pleased to announce a new partnership that will offer club playing tour services for USA Rugby Members through the United Kingdom and Europe, along with ticket and travel packages for USA Eagles fans looking to see the best overseas rugby has to offer.
Venatour Sports Travel was formed in 2012 by former England rugby and British & Irish Lions player Gareth Chilcott, with the sole purpose of providing reasonably priced sports tour packages of the highest quality to sports fans, schools and clubs.
Every year, dozens of USA Rugby schools and clubs will plan playing tours in the United Kingdom and Europe, with the goal of playing international clubs of the same age and skill level, undergoing a once in a lifetime experience and ultimately, learning more about the global game firsthand. USA Rugby is thrilled to partner with Venatour on this expansion, making the tour planning process as seamless and enjoyable as possible. Catering from Youth Clubs all the way to senior and legacy sides, Venatour boasts an unrivaled network of Men’s and Women’s club, school and professional contacts for both training, coaching and playing tours.
USA Rugby General Manager of Commercial and Events, Brandy Medran said on the new partnership, “Speaking with any seasoned player, coach or referee in the rugby community, one of the most common themes is how one can find a whole new love for the game when touring to play an international side. Traveling to another country with those closest to you in your rugby club, learning about the world of rugby and having the opportunity to play against host clubs is a legendary experience, and one we’re happy to help provide to USA Rugby Members. Adding with that the opportunity for rugby enthusiasts in the United States to also gain access to premier international events like the Six Nations, Rugby World Cup, and USA Eagles tours; we couldn’t be happier to find a partner in Venatour.”
As the official Travel, Tour and Tickets Partner for USA Rugby, Venatour are the go-to team for your perfect sporting experience in the United Kingdom and Europe. USA Rugby fans can learn more about bespoke hotel and ticket inclusive packages to London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Dublin, Paris or Rome, created to offer a unique experience while taking in the sights and sounds of historic Capital cities.
“The team at Venatour and I are very proud to be associated with USA Rugby and can’t wait to introduce all rugby players in the United States to the rugby community over this side of the Atlantic. I toured the US in my playing days many times and there, more than most places, the rugby communities combine seamlessly and have similar appetites to the matches and the all important camaraderie around the games. Seeing the best of the UK and Europe while combining it with your favorite sport sounds pretty perfect to me and we can’t wait to get our first tours started with USA Rugby and its rugby community.” Gareth Chilcott, Chairman, Venatour.
