Rugby United New York Release
NEW YORK (JANUARY 2, 2020)- Rugby United New York confirmed this evening their plans for a preseason fixture with fellow 2019 Major League Rugby expansion side Toronto Arrows. The match is set for January 25th, with a tentative kick-off time scheduled for 12 PM EST.
Similar to RUNY, the Arrows enjoyed success in their first season of MLR, reaching the Championship Series Semi-Finals. The expansion sides met twice last season, splitting the series with a RUNY victory in Brooklyn followed by an Arrows win in the Great White North.
The preseason fixture will be a controlled scrimmage and the day will also include a joint training session between the two sides. It will be held at the ADPRO Sports Training Center, at the Buffalo Bills’ indoor training facility in Orchard Park, New York. There is no admission fee to attend the event, however, it will be standing room only.
