The Euros is going to be the biggest international Touch event outside the World Cup thanks to the introduction of a new International Series which will itself welcome teams from as far afield as the USA, South Africa, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates.

In all nearly 80 teams will be representing 23 nations, with around 3,500 players, athletes, referees and staff packing the Highfields Sports Centre. This represents a significant increase on 2018 and reflects the continued growth of Touch on the international stage.

A range of sponsorship and partnership opportunities are also available for both the Euros as a tournament and England’s own teams. To find out more email Chris Simon via chris.simon@englandtouch.org.uk
