Fed up with the NFL or NBA? Check out rugby. Saturday, March 10 is FREE Fan Appreciation Day at Infinity Park in Glendale. Colorado’s new professional rugby team, the Glendale Raptors will take on the New Orleans Gold at 3 p.m. for an exciting, action-packed, exhibition match.
Meet Rudi the Mascot, learn the rules and terminology of this game at the Rugby 101 corner, grab a burger and a beverage and cheer on the Raptors! For a double dose of rugby action come early for the match between Regis High School and Jesuit NOLA at 1:30 p.m.
The unique outlook on sportsmanship that rugby inspires hasn’t been lost on its players and coaches either – many are multi-sport athletes, but choose rugby because of the camaraderie, athleticism, and dignity the game engenders. Exceptional facilities and wide acclaim also mean that Glendale attracts international players, many of whom come from countries where the sport is already well established. 4599 E. Tennessee Ave., Glendale.
