The Sacramento Sports Commission and the Sacramento Republic F.C. have partnered up to bring USA Rugby to the capital city. “We are excited that a match of this caliber will take place at the new stadium at Cal Expo, especially since rugby has long been part of Sacramento’s sports history,” said Mike Sophia, Director of the Sacramento Sports Commission. “Even better, this highly followed international match-up holds broad spectator appeal and also offers us the opportunity to showcase our beautiful city.”

This will be the first time USA Rugby has played a game in Sacramento and it's team (The Eagles) is ranked 18th in the World.

The support from the Sacramento rugby community, along with support from our partners at the republic and Sacramento sports commission will ensure us a large turnout to help cheer on the Eagles."
