The 19th Munich Oktoberfest Golden Oldie Rugby Tournament
September 2018

To All Golden Oldies!

In 2018 the biggest sporting event is being held in Germany. Do you want to be able to tell your Grandchildren that you played in it?

Then book your team to take part in the 18th Oktoberfest Golden Oldie Rugby Tournament, staged by the MOB.

The Oktoberfest Tournament is open to all aged 35 and over.

With The World Sevens event (Oktoberfest Sevens) having been successfully held in Munich for the first time in 2017 and a contract to continue with this event thru 2019 (at least) we are trying to change this years OGO to create a festival of rugby in Munich.

This does mean that we are no longer completely independent and and we are currently waiting for the O'fest sevens organising team to get back to us with some details. Only when we have these can we publish tournament details. However, what is certain is that the tournament will go ahead on the 6th October as planned.

We currently have 7 teams showing serious interest but it is still not to late to sign up.

The tournament format depends on the number teams, number (and age) of players and is played according to Golden Oldies rules

Each team will play 2 or 3  forty minute games (tbd) at the end of which, everybody is declared a winner at the post tournament frolics which will include some free beer and something to eat to ensure everybody joins in the fun.

In parallel to our tournament Munich RFC are running their 7s event with separate tournaments for men and women that also attracts (amateur) teams from all over the world. We are hoping to play on the same ground this year. If your club is interested in sending a team to this event, please contact the organisers at: 

Following our tournament we are expecting to visit the World Sevens circuit Oktoberfest Sevens event:     https://www.oktoberfest7s.com/en/   in the Munich Olympic stadium to which we are currently trying to negotiate preferential rates.

On Sunday the 7th we are also hoping to get Oktoberfest tickets. Having changed the dates for this year to the final weekend of the Oktoberfest this year our block booking from previous years has lapsed and we cannot make a new booking until March. As you can imagine getting ca. 150 Oktoberfest seats is not easy so we will have to wait and see how this pans out.
