Nuno Gramaxo presents us the Porto Beach 5’s tournament

How is the organization of Porto’s Tournament proceeding? What will be the news?

The Porto Beach Rugby will take place on June 22nd and 23rd and, for the first time, will be part of the European circuit of Beach Rugby. Porto is an amazing city, winner of several touristic awards including the Best European Destination in 2017, and it awaits the visit of the best European Beach Rugby Teams. Porto local holiday, São João, will take place on the night of June 23. The city won’t sleep, and you are invited to join this fantastic party.

Let’s talk about EBRA SERIES: there have been so many changes, especially in the regulation, how do you live this moment? Do you think that these innovations were useful for the growth of the series?

Due to EBRA changes, I have no doubt in saying that the circuit will increase considerably in terms of quality and number of participants. Participating in the EBRA Series will be a fantastic time for all teams.

Beach rugby is a fantastic sport. In your opinion, what must change to become a “professional” movement?

To become more professional, I believe it need to expand tournaments to new countries, increasing the organizational quality of tournaments, awarding good prizes, invest in better promotion and invite international players . These are all factors that can bring even greater quality.

Looking at the future of EBRA, what would you like to happen? Where should you go to work according to you to establish yourself definitively?

The work developed by EBRA is giving good results, so in a few years Beach Rugby will significantly increase its importance. I would like to be able to watch big tournaments in the big european cities and even in other parts of the globe.

The stages involved will still be Lignano Sabbiadoro, Marseille, The Hague (Holland), Porto, Barcelona, ​​while the final will take place in Figueira da Foz (Portugal). “The meeting in Marseille was very interesting and constructive – commented Lionel Laugier, president of the European Beach Rugby Association – we discussed many points related to our movement and we agreed on many decisions that, little by little, we will reveal . Will there be news in 2019? Certainly. The first is that the final will be held in Figueira, one of the European poles of Beach Rugby. While there is great expectation for other innovations related to the communication of the tournament, but those will be revealed in due time >>. The SERIES organizing machine started up and, after the Marseilles meeting, the climate between the organizers of the various tournaments is certainly very positive and there is the awareness of having to promote the EBRA brand more and more. << The final Portugal should be the pride of our 2019, as well as the promotion of the EBRA Series - continues Giancarlo Stocco, responsible for communication for the series of beach rugby - I would be very happy, then, to see the Italians Crazy Crubs try to run for the European title, After Pessimi and Maccarese would be a great satisfaction to see other Italians on the roof of Europe >>.
