Men's & Women's teams


Bingham Cup Amsterdam 2018 will host tournaments for both Men’s and Women’s teams.

Players and teams in the Men’s Tournament must be part of a member club of International Gay Rugby (IGR). We expect approximately 60 teams (sides) competing across three tiers. The IGR Tournament Liaison Committee will allocate all registered male players to teams (consisting of players from one or more IGR clubs), divide the teams across tiers, and seed the teams within each tier. The draw to divide the teams in each tier across pools will take place on 4 June 2018. All teams will play a mininum of 5 matches and a maximum of 6, producing a final for each group of 4 competing teams, with the Bingham Cup Final being played by the top two teams of Tier One.

The Women’s Tournament will be an invitational tournament with a maximum of 6 teams (sides) competing in a single tier. The IGR Tournament Liaison Committee will allocate all registered female players to a team (consisting of players from one IGR club, one non-affiliated club, or different clubs, either IGR or non-affiliated). The draw to divide the teams across pools will take place on 4 June 2018. All teams will play a minimum of 3 matches and a maximum of 4, producing one final.
