Amsterdam Lowlanders have won the right to host the ninth
biennial Mark Kendall Bingham Memorial Tournament - also
known as the Bingham Cup - which will take place in the
Dutch capital in June 2018.
The Lowlanders' bid came first in a recent vote by all
sixty IGR member clubs, despite facing strong competition
from Edinburgh's Caledonian Thebans, London's Kings Cross
Steelers and Toronto Muddy York who also presented high
quality bids to the IGR Trustees back in July.
Amsterdam's win signals the first time that the Bingham
Cup will be hosted in continental Europe since the tournament's
inception back in 2002.
UPDATE, 2016-10-16 GMT: A joint
statement by International Gay Rugby and the Amsterdam
Lowlanders is now available, detailing more information
about the winning bid.
Huge congratulations to the Lowlanders from the International
Gay Rugby community and...
"PREPARE FOR IMPACT"
