A nationally televised sporting event is coming to Sacramento... rugby.
On June 21, USA Men’s Rugby will be matching up against the Canadian Rugby team. It will take place at the Cal Expo Multi-Use Sports Field being built as a temporary home for the Sacramento Republic FC.
The match will be broadcast on NBC Universal.
Although rugby is played at many levels in the Sacramento region, this is the first time that the USA Men’s Rugby team, the Eagles, will compete on a local pitch.
The Eagles are ranked 18th in the world while Canada is ranked 15th.
