RFU Regulation 15 requires that each CB (Sussex RFU in our case) is notified of all Youth Festivals held within their area. Sussex RFU requires that the notification of Youth Festivals are received at least 4 weeks before each event.
Festivals with 6 or more teams expected from outside of Sussex and our neighbouring CBs (Hants, Kent, Surrey) are classed as ‘National’ and will require CB approval 3 months before the event date.
A 'festival' is defined as an event that involves more than three competing age teams in any rugby age group.
The maximum number of games age group and periods of play are defined within Reg 15.
The attached festival notification / approval request form should be completed and submitted by email to:-
