Aqua Rugby Festival

Sydney’s iconic Manly Wharf hosts the inaugural Aqua Rugby Festival in March 2022!

A two-day floating rugby tournament with a range of invited competitive, exhibition & community rugby union teams to battle it out for the first-ever Aqua Rugby Championship.

Jimmy Galvin, founder and CEO of Aqua Rugby, said it will be the world’s most unique rugby festival.

All matches are played on top of our floating 30 x 30 metre grassed-pitch, where players will dive into the water to score tries off the pontoon + bonus fast-paced rugby rules added to the mix.

Lining the floating pitch will be a flotilla of ticketed Super Yachts, for you to chose your VIP vessel to experience the action from.

Envisioning the Manly shoreline: stacked with food trucks & colourful markets – free for the passing public to experience rugby atop of the water like never before. More to be unveiled on Aqua Rugby in early 2021.

Both male and female rugby greats will play alongside notable up and coming talent from the northern beaches, Shute Shield & NSW Rugby ranks.

Lining the floating pitch will be a flotilla of ticketed super yachts for spectators.

Along the shoreline there will be food trucks and colourful markets, along with huge screens showing all the action for free.
