In addition to new venues in Belfast, Cork, Limerick and Waterford, this year will see IRFU Tag Beach festivals returning to Strandhill in Sligo and Portstewart on the tourist North Coast, adding to the success of previous events during the 2013 summer.
The IRFU Tag leagues cater for all levels of skill and fitness in mixed social teams, and also at selected locations, Summer Leagues, Spring Leagues, Mens and Vets Tag (Men Over 33). The growth of Tag has been greatly successful in spreading the popularity of the game of rugby and its non-contact nature and social aspect have made it accessible to both men and women in the specially graded levels.
Registration of teams to play is performed online only at www.irfutag.ie and is now open. As IRFU Volkswagen Tag is such great unmatchable value, a player in effect pays little more than €4 per week to play a season.
Players also qualify for this year's EXCLUSIVE competition draw when registering online. To qualify all that needs to be done is enter team contact details of 10 or more teammates and complete the signing -up process. Tickets will include category 1 match tickets to one of Ireland's RBS Six Nations or Guinness Series tests at the Aviva Stadium year plus invitations to official IRFU post-match team receptions on game day.
Please note that popular leagues WILL sell out by as early as middle of February, so ensure you beat the competition and register as soon as possible, avoiding disappointed teammates.
