Men's SocialEveryone comes to Ibiza to be social, so why should the rugby there be any different? You won’t just be social at Ibiza’s famous nightlife, because you’ll have a chance to meet members of the rugby community from all over the globe at the Ibiza 10s! Our Men’s Social category is for those who like to strike a balance between a tournament and a holiday and is open to any team who wants to enjoy a decent level of rugby in a professional setting. There’s prize money of €1,250 up for grabs for the winner of the category, so perhaps don’t get too late a night if you want to be in the running!
Men's EliteDoes your team play to win, and to a high standard? If so, the Men’s Elite category is for you. With an enormous first place prize of €7,500, it’s all to play for and the category is a platform for people to play and watch rugby at the highest amateur level. In previous years, we’ve been joined by the likes of former captain of the Tongan national team, Viliami Vaki and Bath and Bristol centre Will Hurrell in this category. Is your team ready to rise to this challenge?
Women's SocialIntroduced to the RugbySpy Ibiza 10s in 2016, this category brings the calculated and tactical skill of women’s rugby to Ibiza. With top prize equal to the Men’s Social category, and with teams coming from as far a field as New Zealand to compete, not to mention a real mixture of abilities, there’s the chance to take a lot away from your experience!
We ensure our team liaisons are experts in the field and have even had a world cup winner in our ranks before. The team liaisons are there to ensure that we continue to have one of the smoothest running amateur tournaments around and to keep you in the loop all tournament long.
The weekend’s gameplay is beamed around the world via our livestream that is not only exciting to watch, but thanks to our professional live commentary team, it’ll also make good listening for all your fans (friends and family), back home.
It wouldn’t be a rugby tournament without a bar, and we’ve got three of them in 2019. One to be announced, by a very special drinks partner, and the other two run as normal by the world’s most famous rugby pub, Twickenham’s Cabbage Patch! As the host of our big closing night fancy dress party, The #popuppatches are now a mainstay at the Ibiza 10s, with a plenty of drinks deals on throughout the weekend.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at the RugbySpy Ibiza 10s! It’s a brilliantly organised event with great staff that make Ibiza a home away from home for the weekend. The standard of rugby is good, and the setting is obviously a huge draw too. I’d highly recommend it to any team, whether social team looking for a bit of a getaway, or a touring elite team on the summer circuit.

The Ibiza 10’s encompasses everything that it should; good rugby on the pitch, quality infrastructure and great entertainment off the pitch. All wrapped up with warm weather and the surroundings of Ibiza. On top of this, there are rugby values galore on show. I have been involved with Rugby Spy Ibiza 10’s for a few years now and have seen the tournament grow and would highly recommend it for any club looking for a summer tour destination for women’s, men’s or vets team. Or even if you fancy a few days in the sun watching some rugby without putting your boots on it is still the destination for you. Run by rugby people for rugby people
-- Catherine Spencer – Ex-England Captain
Having met the RugbySpy crew at a rugby event a few years ago now, it was clear from the get go that the Teams vision was one a forward could definitely engage with…10s in the Sunshine….a format of rugby that still provides the opportunity to scrum and occasionally ruck…!!
The tournament has been hosted at other venues in Ibiza but the new venue is a step up and clearly shows the intent of the tournaments direction and the rugby level it is looking to attract. Serious stuff on the pitch but this is knitted together nicely with a number of bars, food outlets and places to chill-out so the Social element has been well and truly catered for. So while the teams prepare for a tough day of rugby they can look forward to a hard earned beverage and a hot tub when the final whistle blows and the sun sets across the pitch. There’s the odd after-party too so all in all a pretty decent tour weekend!
I had a fantastic time this Summer and very much looking forward to heading back out next year.

I love coming to Ibiza for the tournament. The atmosphere and the level of play are both outstanding. I do love that RugbySpy are trying to keep the family friendly rugby aspect of it which is why we kept coming back. The whole Rugbyspy staff were extremely hospitable and warm towards everyone. Every year the tournament has seemed to have gotten better and I cannot wait to come again.
-- Thomas Reyes – Renegade Rugby
Rugby is played all over the world on all continents in all temperatures and by all grades of player.
Competition might be international; national, regional or local.
There is Schools rugby; youth rugby and veteran’s rugby
There is men’s rugby and ladies rugby.
The joy of Ibiza is that you get all of this in one place at one time - and what a place………..
From a referee’s perspective -we love Ibiza: good competition; good pitches; fantastic weather; great company –and an après party to die for…….
I hope to see you there!
