Stage and Screen to Manage SANZAR Rugby Travel Needs

Stage and Screen Travel Services, the entertainment and sports travel management brand of Flight Centre Travel Group, has won a five-year contract to provide travel management to SANZAR – a joint venture between the rugby unions of Argentina, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

Stage and Screen will manage travel for the body charged with running two of the world’s pre-eminent rugby competitions – Super Rugby and The Rugby Championship.

The contract includes end-to-end travel management for all games played within the Super Rugby competition between February and August, as well as The Rugby Championship including the prestigious Bledisloe Cup.

Stage and Screen will oversee travel logistics for all teams including players, coaches, management and support crews from across SANZAR’s key regions.

“Under our service model, each team across SANZAR's key regions will have a dedicated Stage and Screen travel manager. This will ensure the team managers and players have a single point of contact for all of their travel needs which includes 24/7 support when and wherever required,” said Stage and Screen’s General Manager, Tiziano Galipo.

SANZAR Interim Chief Executive Officer, Brendan Morris, said, “Rugby is a sport that’s loved and watched with a passion across the world and we must ensure our players are in the best possible condition for every game. Logistics are a significant part of this, particularly in one of the world's most challenging and travel-intensive competitions so it’s critical that our teams’ travel experience is as seamless as possible. This means the right flight schedules, high quality and secure accommodation in a convenient location and reliable ground transport. Every aspect of travel needs to run smoothly so our teams can be physically and mentally prepared for each match.”
