Hampshire RFU Floodlit Under 23s Competition 2019/20 

Plans are being drawn up for an exciting new competition, to be played on Friday evenings in early 2020, to energise rugby for younger adult players with an aim to retain players AND bring new players into the club game!


Friday 31 January - pool games week 1

Friday 7 February - pool games week 2

Friday 21 February – semi finals

Friday 6 March - Finals

Fixture dates will be selected to coincide with 6 Nations weekends and therefore not conflict with 1st XV fixtures.

Fixtures will be played in locations around the County with 2 x 60 minute games being played consecutively in each location during the pool stage.

Finals will include a Cup and plate competition:

The competition shall be played according to the World Rugby bye-laws, regulations and laws of the game. These can be found on the World Rugby website, www.world.rugby.

Tailored competition rules will be issued by Friday 6 December 2019.


It is hoped that clubs with flood lights will kindly volunteer to host these Friday night fixtures.

Clubs will be invited to submit entry forms which will be made available shortly.

Please contact Mark Vickers or Pat Burns as soon as possible if you are prepared to host.
