- First-ever International Rugby event in Tehran
Under the new leadership of Iran Rugby Association, Asia Rugby is pleased to announce Iran as the host of the Asia Rugby Men’s Division 3 West Championship. This is the first international XV rugby event ever being held in the country; the tournament will take place in the capital city Tehran from 9th through 14th May 2022.
Qatar are the Division 3 West reigning Champions as they won the 2019 event by edging out Lebanon 13-10 in the final at the Aspire Rugby Stadium in Doha. The Qataris win in 2019 put an end to Lebanon’s success in the tournament who had won the previous two titles in 2017 and 2018.
