Re: Rugby world cup lugano

Lugano has a rugby club, so could be a good starting point if you can't find anyone from here (http://www.rugbylugano.ch/).

Alternatively, head down to any expat pub and you'll likely find the matches being shown and plenty of people to get to meet.

Re: Rugby world cup lugano

Ah thanks so much Carlo, really appreciate, had no idea there was a rugby club in Lugano, will check it out.
I have found a few expat pubs in Lugano (not many) one Irish pub that might play it and thats about it so Rugby Club is the best bet me thinks.

Thanks again

Eugene

Rugby Lugano do not have their own premises, they did not make special arrangements for the last Rugby World Cup. You can enquire yourself tomorrow if you want. Lugano's second team are playing Zugo seconds at home, Campo Muzzano, Via Vadeggio, Agno. Kick off 13.00.

Re: Rugby world cup lugano

best bet for meeting people and seeing the matches: https://www.google.ch/maps/@45.99674...!6m1!1e1?hl=en

Also the Trinity should show the matches: https://www.google.ch/maps/@46.00681...!6m1!1e1?hl=en

I'd say there will be a few interested people there but Sorengo is likely to be busier because of the college.

Re: Rugby world cup lugano

Apparently there is a new sports bar opening in Lugano this month and am pretty sure one could make a wish for them to show rugby too. I would not mind to meet up with people wanting to see the games, its world cup after all

Think the new place will be called Rookies and is to be near via F.Pelli.

Re: Rugby world cup lugano

I have just found out that Rugby Lugano WILL be showing selected games @ the facility in Via Vedeggio, Agno. Don't know about tonight but Argentina and Italy for sure.

Contacts can be found on www.rugbylugano.ch

Apparently there is sports bar in Agno that may show games.

Re: Rugby world cup lugano

Hey Eugene, Rookies seems to be opening soon, a mate has just emailed for details, the facebook page is up and running.
If its good, we will be heading down to watch some games.
Probably not open in time for England Wales match on Saturday.

Just looked it up, heard about this earlier in the post but thought was not going to open. Now looking at Facebook it certainly is!!!
Excellent news, seems like a bit tight for Sat, will keep checking.
Looks a tad clinical but cant judge it yet as not been and if they have the games is all good!
Will keep an eye on it and give you shout if head down.
Thanks so much!!!
