The University of Limerick hosts the 2023 ITF Tag World Cup with 13 Irish Squads involved

There is a plethora of Limerick based players spread across the squads, with entry to the campus free to support the teams in green.

The International Tag Federation World Cup takes place at University of Limerick, starting this Wednesday and continuing through onto Saturday 5th.

Austrialia, New Zealand, Great Britain, USA, Hong Kong, Japan, South Africa and Vietnam are just some of those taking part, alongside hosts, Ireland.

Tag is a fun social game of rugby, which is seven-a-side. It is played at many locations around Ireland and the globe. This represents the chance for the top players in several categories to represent their country on an international stage.

The competition will see men’s grades at 21’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and 60’s – while the Men’s Open is considered the cream of the crop. There is also 21’s, 30’s, 35’s and Open for the Women’s teams, while there is also a handful of mixed grades.

There is a plethora of Limerick based players spread across the squads, with entry to the campus free to support the teams in green. Ireland has 13 teams across the grades.

In 2019, Ireland was awarded the hosting of the competition, penciled in for 2021. Previously only the southern hemisphere had held the World Cup competition. Covid has caused two delays to the staging of the competition, but now the Limerick University appears ready for some fast, all-action games of tag.
