    The Union Cup 2017 is the largest sporting component for the World Pride Madrid 2017. Europe’s largest inclusive rugby tournament was this year hosted by the Madrid Titanes RFC from 28-30 April and saw more than 1000 players and supporters from 30 different European teams participate in a 3 day event across the city. This year the Madrid Titanes took the unprecedented step of inviting South Africa’s Jozi Cats, the only inclusive rugby team in Africa, to the European tournament in recognition of the hard work they are doing on the continent and to help raise their visibility at home.
