CONTRIBUTED BY CITY OF GLENDALE
Glendale, Colorado is the place to be next weekend as the rugby world converges on Colorado for the Eighth Annual RugbyTown 7s tournament. Twenty teams from around the world travel to Glendale to compete for the chance to win $10,000.
Since 2011, the RugbyTown 7s tournament has attracted top rugby competition from around the world. Premier domestic and international clubs bring their best to RugbyTown USA, as well as representative teams from all five branches of the US Military. With Friday and Sunday prices at $5, and Saturday only $15, this is quite possibly the best opportunity for families to attend a sporting event in the Denver metro area without breaking the bank.
Sevens rugby is a variation on rugby with seven players on each team and matches lasting only 15 minutes. Athletes are tested on durability and strength as the play is wide open and high scoring.
Friday evening is opening night and will offer $5 tickets, happy hour pricing on beer, food and commemorative t-shirts. Kids twelve and under are admitted for free. At the end of the evening we will celebrate with fireworks to kick off the weekend.
Saturday, we all stand united with our military teams – US Army, US Navy, US Air Force, US Coast Guard & US Marines, as they play through to the special military championship. Infinity Park also hosts the Bruises and Brews Beerfest from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. with dozens of breweries and distilleries on hand for sampling.
Sunday, the tournament culminates with the quarterfinal, semifinals and final championship match. The gates open Sunday morning at 11 with brunch, mimosas and a Hawaiian themed day. There will be hula lessons, activities for kids and food trucks. Tickets are $5 again on Sunday with kids twelve and under free.
