The Bahamas Rugby Football Union hosted the Rugby World Cup Sevens & the Commonwealth Games Qualification Tournament for Rugby Americas North (RAN) Sevens Qualifiers on April 23 & 24th, 2022 at the Thomas A. Robinson Stadium in Nassau, Bahamas. Nassau is a familiar location for some athletes throughout the region, having played host to the Youth Commonwealth Games in 2018.
CUB who sponsors the Bahamas Rugby Union had the privilege of serving as the event’s ‘Title Sponsor’. Our commitment to sport goes beyond sponsoring teams and events. Scores of colleagues and rugby fans went to support The Bahamas’ National teams over the two day event.
“We are delighted to be bringing our RAN Sevens Qualifiers to Nassau, Bahamas this April at the world-class Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium. This tournament is a direct qualifier for both Rugby World Cup Sevens and The Commonwealth Games, and we are expecting a high-level of competition over the two days to crown champions that will represent our region this year at two of the sport’s biggest events… I would like to thank Adam Waterhouse and the Bahamas Rugby Football Union, along with The Bahamas Government, for putting their hand up to host this event” – Niall Brooks, RAN General Manager
“What does it mean for The Bahamas to host this event? It means excitement, it means progress and it means that Rugby gets moving again… This event will bring players back to the community, generate a buzz about the game and inspire Bahamian youth to come out and play our wonderful sport!…This is a landmark event for both Rugby Americas North (RAN) and The Bahamas. Together we have the potential to demonstrate that rugby is back and it’s back in a big way. Hopefully this will generate a lot of interest locally and further afield and The Bahamas can be seen as a premier Sports Tourism destination and all visitors can truly experience Sports in paradise after all, It’s better in The Bahamas!” – Adam Waterhouse, Bahamas Rugby Football Union President
