US Rugby Foundation Announces Latest Match Day Tent Recipients

The United States Rugby Foundation has announced its latest co-branded tent recipients.

The idea behind the tent program is to give teams a home on the road. Having a tent with the team's name emblazoned on the side provides teams with an identifiable place to store their kit and meet up.

The USRF identifies programs that are growing the game and growing their numbers.

"The future of rugby in the United States is bright!" enthused USRF Youth/High School Committee Chair Ray Green. "We received over 100 applications from youth and high school clubs all over the country for our Match Day Tent program and they were an absolute joy to read. Our clubs are providing a fun, active place for kids and young adults to learn to play the best game on earth, while also fostering personal development, teamwork, and individual responsibility. Thanks for all you are doing to grow the game. Congratulations to all of this year’s winners! We can’t wait to see the pictures of your team with the tent in action.”

Teams will receive their tents by the end of the year.

The following rugby programs will be receiving a match day tent co-branded with their team name and the US Rugby Foundation logo.
