A great option for rugby teams looking to escape to warmer climates.
Rugby in Andalucía is growing. It certainly lacks the depth available in and around Madrid, Castilla Y Leon and Catalonia, but with several strong clubs, the local representative team regularly goes toe to toe with the bigger boys in the North. Clubs in Malaga, Seville, Granada & Cordoba make up the top end of the game in Andalucía, with the sport also played to a good level in the local Universities.
Look out for the immense Rugby facility at Rincon de la Victoria, a stones throw from Malaga. This €1m venue was opened in 2015 following a generous donation from a local politician who was a huge supporter of local rugby.
The superb flight-connections to airports across the UK make Malaga an readily available option for rugby teams looking to migrate to warmer climates year round.
