Malta Vets (+35) Rugby Tournament

4 Days

3rd till 6th May 2024

The Event

The Malta Vets Rugby Tournament has been established in 2004 by Sundreams Travel in collaboration with the MRFU and has been running since then successfully every year. We have hosted many teams from all over Europe and have made so new many friends in process.

Malta is a great place for a rugby tour, having ideal weather, good facilities, a growing rugby family and of course a lot of entertainment all offered in a safe and unique setting of the bustling sea side town of St Julian’s, where all teams stay.

The event normally starts with a social gathering which includes food and 3 pints for all the teams to break the ice and set the right mood. The tournament normally happens on the Saturday with shortened games (10 minutes each way) played in 15s format. Normally each team plays between 3 to 5 games during this afternoon. An on pitch  presentation follows with the custom 3rd half of course with some local grub for all participants.

In the evening transport will pick up all the teams and and drop them off at a local attraction where we will provide a short tour, after the tour we will be transferring you to the warm up venue at which you have food and 3 pints included and after all teams hit St Julian’s in fancy dress and rugby gentlemen in their creative costumes become the celebrities of Malta’s night life quarter for one night. Sunday is usually activity day where some teams choose a boat trip, others an excursion, fish lunch or a watersport party, all organised by our experienced team.

All that’s left is for you to get in touch, the rest is up to us. See you in Malta!

  1. Fun Experience
    By Simon Rugman – Drybrook RFC February 7, 2023
    I emailed sun dreams as our vets rugby’s team toured to Malta in 2016. Pierre was recommended to me highly. However my group of lads had played enough rugby over the years. So I explained that to Pierre, he then came back to me with options. We went with the boat trip to Gozo. Obviously it’s who you’re with but the lads said “never stopped laughing the whole time” It helped that we had a Stag with us. And with our fancy dress’s the streets of Malta was our Stage! Very accommodating to our group. Pierre chose us the best hotel to suit. Pool with poolside bar was essential. All in all from the first email to making sure we were home Pierre was on hand. & he presented me with a Maltese rugby shirt, that was a lovely touch!
  2. Highly Recommend
    By Paul Ryan January 27, 2023
    I have been bringing a rugby Team to the Malta Vets Tournament for 4 or 5 years now and everyone in our party wants to know when the next Malta Tour is! The journey starts months before the event, with Pierre providing a very personal touch to the organising, covering transport, accommodation and activities to the nth degree. In Malta we have always been well looked after, with great service, appropriate hotels, luxury coaches and friendly venues, I would recommend any holidays (not just Rugby Tours!) with Sundreams Travel.
  3. Wonderful holiday
    By Bill Wood September 17, 2022
    Just a quick note to say thanks Pierre for arranging our mini trip to Malta. Plus also for the lift back to our hotel - most appreciated. We all managed to get back in one piece, although Robbie was a bit of mess. Great to see you again - and hope to meet up in the future - Cheers
