Welfare and accessibility are at the heart of Game On Global, a program of optional community law variations launched by World Rugby and national member unions today. The introduction of Game On Global follows World Rugby’s recently launched participation plan to accelerate sustainable rugby involvement beyond the COVID-19 pandemic and in line with the transformational strategy to cement rugby as the most progressive sport on player welfare.
Game On Global provides national unions with the ability to implement modified laws at a domestic mass participation level, furthering game experience and safety for participants. Rugby Canada's Law Variation Working Group will begin work alongside PSO's and local Canadian Clubs to help guide and implement variations. Provinces will report back on Game On Global law variations so Rugby Canada can measure the impact it has on the community game in our country as well as help shape the growth of the game world-wide.
Starting in January 2022, a menu of 10 law variants will be available. Game On Global law variations will be implemented in company with our National Age Grade Law Variations in Canada.
