Overview

The 3rd edition of the International GLS Algarve 7s rugby tournament will take place on the weekend of the 5th - 8th June 2020, at the magnificent Vila Real de Santo Antonio Stadium & Sports complex in Eastern Algarve. The GLS Algarve 7s is quickly establishing itself as the best and most entertaining rugby sevens international tournament in Europe. For the 2019 second edition of the GLS Algarve 7s we had more than 40 teams taking part, with a large amount of teams coming from near and far such as Venezuela, China, Hong Kong, South Africa plus many European Countries such a France, Romania and Italy as well as a healthy proportion of Portuguese teams entering in all competitions. For 2020 we expect the event to attract more teams and raise the level even greater in all competitions of the GLS Algarve 7s rugby tournament. Off the pitch there will also be several side events making sure the GLS Algarve 7s experience is as intensive off the pitch as on the pitch!

Introducing

The Algarve

The alluring coast of the Algarve receives much exposure for its breathtaking cliffs, golden beaches, scalloped bays and sandy islands. But 'sun and sand' is far from the end of the Algarve story; there's no shortage of other attractions – activities, beach bars (and discos), castles (both sand and real), diving, entertainment, fun…

If you wish to explore a little more of the Algarve during your GLS Algarve 7s weekend, we have a long list of group activities and excursions for you to pick from. At the time of enquiry/booking your team participation please make sure to request our:
