The 33rd Annual Rugby Classic, which takes place from the 7th to the 13th November, will be a “Vaccinated Only” event.
John Kane, the World Rugby Classic President, in announcing this said “Our primary concern is to protect everyone attending the Classic, as well as Bermuda at large, and this is the best way we can do this.
Vaccination plus SafeKey will be required of everyone including players, official, volunteers, caterers, delivery personnel et al and no one, including ticket holders, will be able to access the National Sports Centre North Field area without them.
SafeKey, following a negative Covid test, is not sufficient on its own for our purposes, vaccination is the key for those 12 and over.
It is very important that we put on a safe event as Bermuda needs to start on the road to recovery and this event provides some much needed income to the Island.
And welcome news for local sports enthusiasts is that Bermuda will be taking part for the first time in many years.
The United States team has had to withdraw and we are delighted that Bermuda has stepped in to fill the gap”
The 33rd Classic will be an all ticket event with no sales at the gate.
