The best of Portugal Rugby Youth Festival 

PRYF 23 will give you and your team an unforgettable experience both on and off the pitch. Rugby matches against international opponents, exciting leisure time activities, and great entertainment. All in Lisbon, the capital city of Portugal and one of Europe's safest and most exciting cities, with its warm weather climate and white sandy beaches.

If you are a player, a coach, a manager, or a parent, this is your chance to be part of over 300 rugby matches in just two days. A total of eight rugby pitches, where the University Stadium of Lisbon is a dream theatre for so many young rugby players.

Portugal Rugby Youth Festival's format guarantees all teams competitive matches against international opponents.


How does it work?

  • Pre-tournament: The organization will coordinate and make all travel arrangements for foreign teams.
  • Group stage: On match days, shuttle buses will be available to take teams to and from the tournament venue.
  • Play-offs start early in the morning and finals are played in the afternoon.
  • There is also time to party: welcome cocktail and award ceremony.



One of our goals with the Portugal Rugby Youth Festival is for coaches to have time and opportunity for a good rugby chat across borders. There are also trips downtown Lisbon or to the coastal resort of Cascais and Estoril.
