CLAYTON, NC – The Clayton Rugby Football Club is excited to announce that the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott has signed on as the official hotel partner of the 2nd Annual CottonTown 7s Rugby Festival. The tournament, played at East Clayton Community Park, is scheduled for Saturday July 15th. After a great first year, the tournament has been expanded in 2017 and now covers three playing fields with teams playing in Men’s Club, Women’s Club, Men’s Social, and High School Boys Divisions. After bringing in 18 teams to the event in 2016, the club is aiming for 24-30 teams in 2017.
The Fairfield Inn & Suites is located on Venture Drive near the Carolina Premium Outlets and is just a short drive from East Clayton Community Park. Teams travelling from out of town for the CottonTown 7s will receive discounted hotel rooms to go along with close proximity to restaurants, shopping, entertainment, and the venue for the tournament.
“We’re hoping that this is the first of many collaborations with the Fairfield Inn,” said Clayton RFC President Ted Hardy. “Once our facility is open we plan to host even more events and a having a hotel partner, that we can count on to treat our visitors great, will be at the top of our list. They are in a great location close to amenities and should be a great host for our visiting teams.”
