The update you’ve been waiting for…….

We are pleased to announce that Touch My Brum will be going ahead on Saturday 17 July 2021.

We are not so pleased to announce that it will be in a pared down form compared to what we were hoping to be able to offer. We may be able to tweak things as we get near the event, but for now this is how things are looking.

Weekend

Registration will occur at Sutton Coldfield on the morning of the event. We will be unable to offer any events before or after the tournament in the Birmingham Gay Village, but teams may wish to make their own arrangements.

COVID Secure

We will be operating under the guidance issued by HM Government, Birmingham City Council, England Rugby, and any operating procedures of Sutton Coldfield RFC.

Everyone will need to register in their own names, and a screening questionnaire will need to be completed. This can be done online on Saturday Morning.

We ask that people arrive pre-changed, wear masks in any indoor areas, and maintain social distancing while outside and not playing. Full details will be posted on the site, and made available in the event programme.

Ticket Sales

Ticket sales will open on Monday 21 June at 6.00pm. There will be an invoicing option available for clubs. The cost will be £25, with group booking discounts available.

The Rules

Updated rules are now available on the website by following the link above. A PDF version will be made available shortly.

Any questions ?

If there are any questions then please contact touchmybrum@birminghambullsrfc.com

Thank you once again for your patience during these times.

Update: HMG Delay to Full Easing

With the full easing of lockdown being delayed we are revising plans of what the tournament will look like.

We are currently waiting on CB to receive the latest guidance before we know if they will be able to give permission for the tournament to go ahead. 

As soon as we hear anything we will let everyone know.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding.

6 weeks to go !!!

The interest in Touch My Brum has been amazing. As long as everything goes ahead for the 21 June, we will be good to go. We will not be doing any registration until this point to avoid having to issue refunds should things change.

The increase in numbers has introduced a few ridiculously boring challenges, which we are working through. This will also have an impact on costs as well, but we are still trying to keep it as close to last year’s as possible.

The tournament format and timings are being looked at, along with a few rehearsals- we want to keep things moving, but we don’t want to make the schedule a white knuckle ride.

The Weekend Schedule 2021 pages have been updated with information as far as possible, and the Locations page has also been updated.

Along with this there is the Inclusivity & Accessibility pages – if there is anything that is missing, then please do ask.
