Many clubs have attended the HSBC Rugby Festival in Dubai over the years, here are some of the clubs that are attending the 2023 event:


The HSBC Rugby Festival Dubai hosts only accept Team entries.  As a Team Manager, please contact your Rugby Club if you require any information regarding your team’s participation.

Then register your team through the online portal by clicking on Register / Login in the menu.  Once registered you will receive a link to set your password and then you can manage your team(s) and players yourself. It is imperative that the Medical Waiver / Consent form is signed and uploaded for each player.


To enter the Tournament each player needs to be registered with a Club.

Each Club will have a Team Manager who will be responsible for registering their team, including individual team players names & medical waiver form.


Many thanks for offering to assist with running the HSBC Rugby Festival event. We couldn’t do this without you! We need volunteers to help with the following roles:

  • Pitch Managers and Pitch Marshals (Dubai Exiles and Dubai Hurricanes members only)
  • Referees (Each team entry must nominate a Referee who will be available on relevant day of play)
  • First Aid helpers (Each team entry must nominate a First Aid helper who will be available on relevant day of play)

We have a full guide to what is involved for anybody who would be kind enough to help by being a Pitch Marshall. PDF versions of normal and cup final score cards for referees are available here.
