This event has been in the works for a while. The American Raptors, based in Glendale, Colorado, traveled to Montevideo, Uruguay last fall to test their mettle against both local club teams and the Uruguayan National Team’s Academy side. While in Uruguay the Raptors were able to visit and spend time with teams and forge a relationship that brings the Superliga Americana de Rugby teams to the United States this summer.
Currently SLAR consists of member teams from Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay, Argentina, Chile, and Columbia. Expect an announcement soon of the two teams that will travel from South America along with the other team that will join the Raptors as North American team representatives.
Fans can expect an exciting international competition hosted in the Infinity Park stadium. Two matches will be played each day on June 11 and June 18 with the first match at 1:00 pm and the second kick off at 3:30 pm. Infinity Park is a great place to experience rugby and even first-time fans find the intimate placement of the pitch close to fans an exciting opportunity to learn more about rugby.
The fun is enhanced with plenty of food options and a safe environment for children. Cost for the event is affordable with daily tickets $10 for adults and kids 12 and under enter for free. For more match information check out the Tickets & Events section of the website.
