GLENDALE, CO. - The USA Men’s Collegiate All-Americans are confirmed to face a newly formed All-Canadian University XVs on July 27, Kickoff 4 PM Mountain Time, at Infinity Park in Glendale, CO.

As a curtain raiser for the senior test match between the USA Men’s Eagles and rival-Canada -- kicking off at 6 PM as part of the Pacific Nations Cup -- the collegiate game will also serve as a finale to the Men’s Collegiate All-Americans annual Selection Camp from which First, Second and Third Team honors will be awarded.

Details for Selection Camp will be announced in the coming weeks.

USA General Manager of Men’s 15s Dave Hodges said: “We’re thrilled to build on the success of last year’s Collegiate All-American Selection Camp finale by exposing our young players to international competition with Canada’s newly formed university side. We are grateful to Rugby Canada for collaborating with us on an initial home and away series which will see us go play the All-Canadian University XVs in Canada in 2020.

"Having our All-Americans assemble and play alongside our senior national team will be an exciting setting for the team of aspiring Eagles, especially in a World Cup year. We’re thankful as ever to the City of Glendale and Infinity Park for their support in hosting this two-part event for the rugby community.
