Manila 10s 2023 Dates Confirmed
The Manila 10s has confirmed the popular Philippines rugby tournament will be held from 24-26 March 2023 at the Alabang Country Club in Metro Manila.
The organisers said online earlier this year “It’s been a long time coming but dates have been set for the 32nd Manila 10’s. Fun to start on Friday 24th March with matches on the 25th/26th March.” The tournament is sponsored by Overgaard Limited.
The Nomads Rugby are the traditional organisers of The Manila 10s – which was the first-ever rugby tournament held in the Philippines.
The first tournament featured five teams playing in a one-day tournament but at the most recent event held in 2020 there were five divisions for the men including a women’s division, and a men’s veteran’s division for teams fielding only players over 35.
The tournament usually hosts a Rugby Lunch which has featured several iconic rugby stars such as John Bentley (England / British & Irish Lions), Frank Bunce (All Blacks), David Campese (Wallabies), Nick Farr-Jones (Wallabies), Gavin Hastings (Scotland / British & Irish Lions), Sir Ian McGeechan (Scotland / British & Irish Lions), Murray Mexted (All Blacks), Joel Stransky (South Africa), Karl Te Nana (All Blacks) and many more.
We will have to wait to see if more details for 2023 are announced.
