In total, there were more than 130 rugby matches in the 13th edition of the Portugal Rugby Youth Festival, played in five fields at the Lisbon University Stadium. For António Cunha, Move Sports' CEO and the event's director, “this was a very important edition of PRYF, which we have been organising for 13 consecutive years. Having a full-fledged PRYF is very positive for Portuguese rugby and paves the way for the return of all international teams in 2022, which presence contributes decisively to raising the level of our rugby and giving valuable international experience to our young players”.
In 2022, the 14th edition of the Portugal Rugby Youth Festival will resume its usual spring break schedule: the tournament will take place on April 9 & 10, in Lisbon.
