San Diego Legion Release
San Diego, CA (April 5, 2021) – San Diego Legion is returning to its home in San Diego, CA. On April 12, the team will relocate back to San Diego and resume training at the Legion High Performance Center and Headquarters in Carlsbad.
Due to various limitations caused by the pandemic in California, the San Diego Legion temporarily relocated to Las Vegas, NV for the beginning of the Major League Rugby 2021 season. The team is now returning to its home in San Diego for the remainder of the MLR season.
“We’d like to thank all of our fans and partners for their continued support during this unprecedented year,” said Ryan Patterson, CEO & President at San Diego Legion. “Our team is excited to get back to San Diego and continue on our quest for the shield. America’s Finest City is our home and we love being a part of the San Diego community. We also want to thank the business community in Las Vegas for the great support they showed us while we were there.”
“Once the team is settled back in San Diego, we look forward to reconnecting with our fans and the San Diego community more generally,” said Darren Gardner, Executive Chairman at San Diego Legion. “It has been a tough few months. This has clearly been reflected in how we have performed on the field in the first few games of the season. With Chris Robshaw’s first appearance on the horizon, the return of Josh Furno from France and some more high profile signings to be announced shortly, everyone is very excited to be coming home.”
More details about 2021 location for games and ticket sales will be available at a later date. Fans are encouraged to join the San Diego Legion official waitlist and be one of the first groups to purchase tickets.
