These large, premier, Touch events take a lot of planning and operational delivery. We therefore want to acknowledge and thank those in the wider team, who helped make it happen.
Firstly, to the host city of Torrevieja. We worked closely with Ayuntamiento de Torrevieja in collaboration with Concejalía Deportes Torrevieja Sports City, to use the fantastic facilities at the Nelson Mandela Rugby Stadium.
The additions that the city and tourism department provided, were excellent, with goodies bags for all participants. We even had Javier López (Facilities coordinator) and Diana Box (Secretary of Sport) attending to start the final match and help hand out trophies.
Arpamedia Broadcast Services, for their professional live streaming service, with over 15 hours of live footage, over the two days.

A big thanks to the two hotels, Hotel Playas de Guardamar and Hotel Playas de Torrevieja who provided excellent facilities, food and the epic afterparty for everyone.
Muchas Gracias to the team on the ground Antonio “Big Tony” Nawaqavou, Angelique Bisschop, Ignachio Daca and Felipe Lees Ibiricu (from Pescadors Sports Group), along with Fernando Molina and Joaquin Bueno (ObjetivoTorrevieja) for their photos along with all the volunteers from the club too.
Our resident statistician, and admin guru, Lewis Husbands, who collated results and try scorers, whilst also juggling his refereeing duties too. Referee Coach, Matt Boesen, who coached, Refereed, cajoled, motivated and helped organise the referee contingent across the event.
Finally to the OT7 crew, both on-site and behind their desks, for delivering another professional event - as always going above and beyond the call of duty, to ensure seamless delivery.
From the graphics, social media and team documentation, to the negotiations and in-country delivery. First to arrive and last to leave, it simply wouldn’t have happened without your dedication and positive attitude.
The feedback has been excellent and it’s a credit to everyone involved.
