It's with great sadness we have to cancel the New Zealand Junior Rugby Festivals for 2021 to be held in Taupō, Queenstown and Christchurch due to the COVID-19 alert level change.

We are absolutely gutted for everyone involved, especially all the junior players that will miss out on touring with their teammates, with the chance to represent their clubs and communities, playing and meeting teams from across New Zealand and Australia.

It’s more important than ever that we stay connected and continue to invest our country’s greatest asset, our young people. So we will back stronger and better than ever in 2022, there is no way we are going out like this.

Much love from all of the Global Games team

2021 Registrations NOW CLOSED!

The purpose of the New Zealand Junior Rugby Festival is to give all junior rugby players the opportunity to participate against clubs from around the country and the world, on a foundation of sportsmanship, enjoyment and friendship; all the while creating lifelong memories with their mates on tour.


Over the past 11 years, we have given over 30,000 junior rugby players incredible experiences to last a lifetime, travelling out of their home region and even countries many of whom for the first time.  To attend sporting festivals and academies in venues and stadiums normally reserved for their sporting heroes in amazing locations.

Our team prides itself on proving world-class experiences for all young people and making the impossible seem possible.

We believe: If you can dream it, you can Live it!
