The Guyana Rugby Football Union (GRFU) will host an event themed ‘Sip and Paint’ Black Tie Edition at Pressy’s Banquet Hall on Regent Street, Georgetown, from 18:30h to 23:00h, on Sunday, December 5.

The main aim is to raise funds to offset expenses for the upcoming Rugby Americas North (RAN) Sevens tournament in Mexico from February 11-13, 2022.

GRFU President Ryan Dey indicated to News Room Sport that this will be the first of a series of fundraisers to offset the approximately GY$15 million budget to send a male and female Sevens team to the event.

The tournament will involve a variety of categories. Both Seniors and Juniors will feature, as well as both Men’s and Women’s teams.

Moreover, the 2022 RAN Sevens will also serve as qualifiers for the 2022 Central American and Caribbean Games, Rugby World Cup Sevens, and the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Only full World Rugby members will qualify for the aforementioned tournaments. At this year’s tournament held in the Turks and Caicos, Guyana, a seven-time champion, finished fifth.
