In order to maintain a COVID Secure environment we have to restrict those on site to ticketed spectators only.
Please do not attend without already having a ticket.
Here’s your guide to the day.
We are able to run the tournament only through ensuring that we are compliant with COVID restrictions in place by the UK Government and England Rugby.
Please comply with these requirements on the day, but also by ensuring that if any isolation of your team is required through positive tests that this is carried out. We thank you on behalf of everyone attending for your co-operation with this.
SOCIAL DISTANCING MUST BE MAINTAINED WHEN NOT PLAYING
Don’t forget sunscreen.
Follow COVID Secure Guidance
Trans women are women, and trans men are men.
Before arrival you will need to complete your the COVID pre-screening questionnaire – https://tinyurl.com/BullsCOVIDScreen
Once you have completed it, you will be mailed a pass that will look like this. You will need to show this on registration.
Plan your journey due to road closure at Junction 10 on the M6.
Arrival – 9.00am onwards
Please do not arrive before 9.00am, this is to allow the volunteers to get the site ready and to receive their briefing.
Car parking onsite is limited, so if you are arriving by car, please try and lift share (within guidance) and park sensibly. If you do need to park off site, please be considerate
Registration – 9.00am – 10.00am
Registration will need to be done by individuals, so please ensure that their names are registered (email@example.com if any changes).
They do not need to have their individual ticket, though it will speed things up a little. At registration they will need to show the pass that was e-mailed to them from the COVID Screening questionnaire.
Each group will have its own pitch to minimise movement and to make it easier for teams to meet. Matches will start NO EARLIER than the stated time, but there may be some delay as the morning progresses.
Lunches will need to be collected by captains / nominated person at some point before the lunch break. The goody-bag is a cool bag, which will help to keep the contents cool.
Passes will be given out for the food which someone will then collect.
The tier allocation for teams will be advised during lunchtime. Times and locations of the tier matches are within your brochures.
Final & Presentation
This will be after the last game. Please maintain social distancing during this part of the day.
Junction 10 on the M6 will be partially closed on Saturday 17 July, with traffic being diverted over the junction. This is likely to cause significant delays, so please plan an alternative route, or allow plenty of time. The M6 Toll is an alternative.
More information from Think Sandwell. NB as at 15 July 2021 the restriction was not showing on Highways England site, so SatNavs may not reflect this.
Thanks to those who have signed up to be volunteers for Touch My Brum. The weekend schedule will look like this.
All events will be at Sutton Coldfield.
Friday 16 July – 19:00 – This is the session sorting the goody-bags out for everyone.
Saturday 16 July – 08:00 – Prepping the ground ready for registration.
Saturday 16 July – 09:00 – Registration starts !
There is still time to sign up as a volunteer for Touch My Brum, there are no horrible jobs, and the atmosphere on the day is amazing. Sign up (for free) at the ‘Buy Registration’ link above.
We have tried to make the process for clubs as slick as possible, but in the background a lot of things still have to happen with human intervention.
Team names have been received from the majority of clubs, but these have yet to be work through in, as the priority was to get the tournament structure finalised. One team was mentioned in a previous post, but only due to the brilliance of one of their team names, and not because we haven’t received an update.
The groups are below. The names used may not reflect any changes to team names as these are still being processed (We’re looking at you South London Stags as your team names are spot on and one of them is a work of pure genius)

We are pleased to be able to announce the tournament structure.
Registration will open at 9.00am on Saturday 17th. At registration you will check in, and also have your COVID pre screening questionnaire checked. Please allow plenty of time for this.
If changing rooms are used, you are requested to keep masks on, and vacate the changing room as quickly as possible. There is no bag storage available.
Morning – Round Robin
Morning play will start at 10.00am. There will be 8 groups of 5 teams where each team in each group will play the other team. Details of the groups will be published over the weekend.
When spectating please maintain social distancing.
There will be a break in play between 1.00pm and 2.30pm. We will be asking a single member from each team to come and collect lunches for their teams.
There will be 5 ranked knockout tiers. The Calthorpe Cup, Beorma Shield, Camp Hill Vase, Mercian Shield, and Eden Tankard.
The final of the Calthorpe cup will kick off at 16:40, then followed by presentation of awards.
Thanks to all those who have registered for Touch My Brum. Despite it not being quite the weekend we all wanted, the response has been amazing.
What we are now doing is finalising the tournament structure. Once we have this done then we can release the timings and structure for the day.
Registration / check-in is going to be a pinch point on the day, so we request that teams keep player details up to date, and that we have addresses and e-mail addresses for all participants. This is essential to maintain a COVID Secure event, so we thank you all in advance for your understanding and co-operation.
