Touch and go: The Super 6s will feature quality rugby talent in the region.

On the heels of a successful inaugural league of the Touch Super 6s, rugby lovers can continue to compete in the first Touch Super 6s Championships next month.

To be held at Dubai Sports City on Friday, January 12, the tournament is set to once again bring together rugby enthusiasts from across the UAE to showcase the region’s talent. Register your team with a squad of up to 14 players for Dh1,200 and play in one of three categories: Men’s, Mixed and Ladies.

For those wanting to play in the second league of the Touch Super 6s, the competition gets under way on January 10 and runs for 10 weeks until March 21.

Teams can register for the league for Dh3,200. In the first season, Patu claimed the crown for the Men’s division, while Kahu earned the Ladies title and the Untouchables won the Mixed Division 2 category.

The competition is expected to once again be at a high level in both the second league and the tournament, which will have a prize giving ceremony at Kickers Sports Bar to award the winners and keep the party going.

Victoria Hepworth, partner at Corporate Affair Event Management and organiser of the Super 6s League, said: “With lots of experience setting up the Middle East Touch Championships and the Zurich Corporate Touch 6s Tournament, and through our great working relationship with METouch, we were confident that the demand for a new touch league was out there, and we weren’t wrong.

Trailblazers: Kahu of BroTown Club won the Ladies title in the first Touch Super 6s league.

“League 1 sold out extremely quickly and, moving forward, we have been able to secure some extra pitch time which has allowed us to grow the up and coming League 2, which we’re thrilled about.

“We’re delighted that the majority of teams from League 1 are coming back for more in January – high praise indeed. The Super 6s also aims to provide a platform for developing referees in the area. We ran a 1 FIT certified course last month which saw more than 25 people graduate onto level 2.

“We’re really pleased to be able to support the sport on so many levels – here’s to a successful 2018.” For more information and to sign up for the league or tournament, visit www.super6s-dubai.com
