International Rugby Union Calendar 2023


What a year 2023 is going to be for Rugby Union! From the famous Six Nations through to the World Cup held in France, it’s lining up to be quite the year for Rugby Union fans. 

Is there anything better than heading to a fixture with all of your friends and family cheering on your team from the stands? We think not and the best part is that National Express Transport Solutions can get you and your group to your chosen event(s) easily, safely and on time. 

Benefits of coach group travel to a rugby event are:

  • You can all travel together without worrying if you’ll find seats all together or having to stand all the way there.
  • Enjoying a beer or two on route is catered for as well as a quick nap if you prefer.
  • Door-to-door pick ups can be arranged so no one has to organise a meeting point and time. 

Once you’ve rounded up your friends and family, let us know which of the below fixtures you’ll be heading to and we’ll organise your group coach hire.
