Rugby in Getxo

Although rugby has been in the air for a few days now, it will be tomorrow Friday and Saturday when Bilbao, and actually all Bizkaia transforms itself to host the long-awaited finals. The Challenge Cup and the Champions Cup And we say all Bizkaia because in addition to these two top-level finals, which will be played in the San Mamés stadium, the Fadura Sports Centre in Getxo is the venue chosen for the final of the European Rugby Continental Shield, to be held on this very Saturday 12 May. This championship is considered the third most important continental competition in terms of level in European rugby, where the teams taking part are on the amateur/professional transition threshold, a similar tier to that of Basque rugby. It is undoubtedly a great promotion opportunity for this sport and a great opportunity to showcase Getxo Rugby Club and its municipality on a European level.
