Play Rugby USA at USA vs. IRE

On Saturday, June 11, 2017 the USA Men’s Eagles took on the Irish at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, NJ.

Play Rugby USA was well represented on the day! We raffled off some Official British & Irish Lions gear (courtesy of Canterbury) during the pre-match festivities and met a ton of amazing fans. Shout out to our awesome volunteers from the Mountbatten institute who came out to help us out at the Fan Festival.

We packed section 215 with 200 Play Rugby USA students, families, volunteers and donors, many of whom were experiencing their very first international match! Then at half-time, 14 of our students from an elementary school in Harlem, NY took the pitch to show the crowd what flag rugby looks like at Play Rugby USA! What an awesome experience for our young people.


Though the USA suffered a tough loss, it was a great day for the Play Rugby USA community, celebrating our great sport and our continued efforts to create a better world through rugby! Thank you to all who were a part of it! #GoForwardTogether
