JBL brings Major League Rugby to New York City
Major League Rugby has announced that Rugby United New York will join the league on an exhibition schedule for the 2018 season. Co-owned by WWE Legend JBL, the Rugby United New York has joined MLR as an associate member and will play a full schedule for the 2019 season.
The team’s first home match, against Boston on Saturday, March 24, at 7 p.m. at Gaelic Park in the Bronx, is open to the public. The game will also serve as the annual FDNY vs. NYPD rugby match, in aid of the McNaughton-Engeldrum fund for the families of fallen personnel. Tickets are available at rugbyunitedny.com.
“Rugby’s values set it apart from other sports, and we have a duty to stand by these and make a meaningful impact in our communities,” JBL said.
