USA vs BRAZIL MATCH RELOCATED TO AUSTIN FOR 2019 AMERICAS RUGBY CHAMPIONSHIP
The first home match for the Men’s Eagles during the 2019 Americas Rugby Championship is relocating from Aveva Stadium in Houston to Dell Diamond in Round Rock outside of Austin, TX. Due to a heavy influx of rain in recent weeks, the new home venue to the Houston SaberCats has experienced a delay in construction and is not projected to be operational come match time on February 23. USA Rugby has aligned with the Austin Elite franchise of Major League Rugby and home venue Dell Diamond to move the event just down the road.
Special ticket packages have also been arranged as Austin Elite host the San Diego Legion on Friday, February 22 – also at Dell Diamond. For fans encouraged to experience a rugby-filled weekend, both the MLR and USA Eagles match will be available as part of a discounted ticket package. More information on ticketing will be released shortly.
Tickets for the match will soon hit the market as pre-sale seats will be available to the USA Rugby pre-sale list along with Austin Elite and Round Rock Express season ticket holders on Tuesday, November 27. Tickets will then be available to the general public on Thursday, November 29.
“Bringing an International Test match to the City of Round Rock and Austin is a formidable opportunity for us to showcase to our community our dedication to the sport in Central Texas,” said Austin Elite President and Owner, Richard Osborn, “With a world class venue like Dell Diamond, we believe this eventful weekend of rugby will be an unforgettable experience for all fans.”
Osborne continued, “The City of Round Rock and Austin have everything from hotels, restaurants and entertainment to become a great destination for international events like this, get ready for an amazing weekend.”
“We’re honored to bring USA Rugby and the Men’s National Team back to Round Rock and Central Texas,” said Ryan Sanders Sports & Entertainment COO, J.J. Gottsch, “Dell Diamond continues to be one of the most versatile stadiums in the country. The addition of this match, along with the hosting of six Austin Elite Major League Rugby matches, continues to showcase Round Rock as the sports capital of Texas.”
The Men’s Eagles will run out onto familiar ground at Dell Diamond having already faced Brazil there during the 2016 Americas Rugby Championship. The United States won, 51-3. Gary Gold’s squad will look to repeat as they compete for a third straight ARC title.
