Six months since the last World Rugby Classic and six months to the next one and, as I have observed in the past, tempus has a way offugiting!
This year Classic Week will start
We are in the process of selecting the teams for this year’s Classic but we can tell you, at this stage, that the Classic All Blacks will be back after a two year hiatus.
There will also be other visiting teams as many seek to be part of the Classic festivities, including teams from the British Army and Atlanta while we have had a recent request for an inter-collegiate match.
Add in some junior and mini rugby and Classic Week will certainly be a hub of rugby activity.
Games will be played
All but one of our Hospitality clients have renewed while a new Hospitality client has joined the Classic family.

|Members Tent||Sunday & Monday||$250 per Day|
|Wednesday, Thursday & Saturday||$300 per Day|
|Five Day Package||$1200|

The Fairmont Southampton will once again be promoting special packages for the Classic while we are delighted that we have received financial support from the new Bermuda Tourism Authority.
It is twenty-six years since the first World Rugby Classic and forty-two years since the first international player took part in the Easter Rugby Classic.
It has been quite a journey!
