GLENDALE, Colo. — Spring Media has secured a deal with ESPN for its Australian, New Zealand, and Pacific Island markets to air the documentary series centered around the Colorado XOs professional rugby player development program.
‘Rugby Town’ is a docuseries shot and produced by Rugby Factory – an international sports media agency – around the Colorado XOs rugby team in Glendale, Colorado. The XOs are a team composed of high-level crossover athletes from professional leagues and college football, basketball, wrestling, and track & field programs. The XO program is designed to help train elite athletes to be professional rugby players and to ultimately help the United States win the Rugby World Cup.
After just one season of competition in Spring 2021, the XO program has successfully helped six players – Kaleb Geiger, Max Dacey, Shawn Clark, Gelen Robinson, David Still, and Ma’ake Muti – ink deals with Major League Rugby teams while several other players drew significant interest. Scrum-half and team captain Michael Bandy signed a training camp deal with the Los Angeles Chargers after spending the spring with the XOs.
The 10-episode first season of ‘Rugby Town’ is available now and season two will be ready for distribution by the end of 2021. More information about season one can be found at https://springmedia.se/rugbytown. You can follow along with the team on Twitter and Instagram (@RugbyTownNTC) and you can follow along with Rugby Factory on all of your favorite social media channels.
