It is with great regret that Global Rapid Rugby CEO Mark Evans has announced the immediate suspension of the 2020 season.

“Travel, quarantine and public health restrictions have provided us with no option but to halt the inaugural Global Rapid Rugby season for the imminent future.

“The sporting environment has been turned upside down by the current worldwide health crisis.

“It’s enormously disappointing to have to suspend the competition just one round into the season, however the health and safety of our players, coaches, staff and fans are always our number one priority.

“We will explore all avenues as we seek to evolve the competition to meet the difficult circumstances we all now find ourselves in.

“One thing that has not changed is our commitment to the development of rugby in the Asia-Pacific region and we look forward to getting back on the park and building on what Global Rapid Rugby has achieved so far.”
