Chicago Ready to Host The Rugby Weekend

Nov 01, 2018

USA Rugby and TLA Worldwide, along with host city partners Chicago Sports Commission and Soldier Field, have announced that world class international rugby will again return to Soldier Field in Chicago for the latest edition of The Rugby Weekend on November 3. 

The iconic NFL stadium will play host to three captivating international rugby matches over the course of one day, featuring the USA Rugby Men’s and Women’s Eagles taking on New Zealand’s inspiring Maori All Blacks and the reigning Women’s Rugby World Cup champion Black Ferns

Six Nations Champions, and current No.2 on World Rugby’s World Rankings, Ireland, return to Chicago to take on Six Nations rivals, Italy. The last time Ireland came to Chicago, it was for The Rugby Weekend 2016, which produced one of the greatest rugby moments in history. Ireland claimed their first win over the New Zealand All Blacks in 111 years in front of a record sold out crowd at Soldier Field.

All matches will take place at Soldier Field on Saturday, November 3, with USA Women's Eagles opening the match line up against the Black Ferns, followed by Ireland against Italy, and finally USA Men's Eagles meet the Maori All Blacks.

A ticket is inclusive of all three matches, meaning three matches for the price of one - a rugby extravaganza!
