Glendale, Colo. - Glendale, Colorado's Infinity Park will host eight college rugby teams August 25 in a collegiate rugby 7s tournament.

This tournament will be a Red Bull Uni 7s qualifier. The eight US teams will compete for a spot in the Red Bull Uni 7s finals in Bath, England on September 17.

The teams slated to compete in Glendale are:

Arizona State University

University of Colorado

Clemson University

University of Denver

Lindenwood University

University of Utah

Utah Valley University

University of Wyoming

The winner will join nine other teams, plus reigning champs Bath University, at the 14,000-seat Recreation Ground in Bath.

The tournament at Infinity Park will be from 11am – 7pm on August 25. Tournament attendance is free for spectators.

Infinity Park, the first rugby-specific stadium in the U.S., covers eight city blocks. At the heart is the rugby field, which is the home to Glendale’s men’s and women’s rugby clubs, both named the Raptors. Measuring 70 meters by 100 meters, the pitch was designed to look good and perform well amid the action above: The 9-inch sand base field supports natural gross sod, which is reinforced with polypropylene fibers. Stadium lighting allows matches at any time of day. In addition to Raptors games, Infinity Park hosts multiple open tournaments every year.
