For the seventh year running, Glendale’s RugbyTown 7s tournament will animate top rugby competition from around the planet. Domestic and international clubs bring their best talent to RugbyTown USA in August, alongside representative teams from all five branches of the US Military, as well as the British Army and Royal Armoured Corps. Participating teams come from the world over, including representatives from the U.S., Canada, Europe, and the Caribbean. 20 elite teams will compete for a $10,000 winner-take-all purse. Hosted at Glendale, Colorado’s Infinity Park, the tournament takes place August 24-26.
The popularity of RugbyTown’s signature event comes as no surprise, especially as the professional team, the Glendale Raptors, celebrate their explosive debut in Major League Rugby during the inaugural season in 2018. Glendale’s rugby programming, which includes amateur club play, a Women’s Premier League team, and Youth Rugby, illustrates the city’s commitment to providing players and coaches a pathway to professional play, and to growing the sport in the United States.
With tournament pool play Friday, knockout play on Saturday, and semi‐finals and championship matches on Sunday, the late-summer weekend will see rugby heroes born. As in years past, Glendale’s annual Bruises and Brews beer festival, hosted by Infinity Park, will only add to the festival atmosphere. Over two days for the first time in 2018, Bruises and Brews will feature more than twenty unique local breweries, distilleries, and cider makers each day. Festival tickets include admission to the RugbyTown 7s tournament and a commemorative tasting mug. A 20% discount is available for Military, Government, and First Responders. Beer and rugby – better together!
This August, the RugbyTown Sevens Tournament will once again show that the world plays rugby in Glendale.
