GRR: USA Rugby
USA Rugby is not out of the woods just yet, but the trees are a little less densely packed now that the NGB's reorganization plan has been approved by its creditors and the Delaware Bankruptcy Court has signed off.
A day after USA Rugby negotiated a major hurdle in its bankruptcy reorganization, having creditors and the courts approve the NGB's reorganization plan, USA Rugby CEO Ross Young set down with Alex Goff.
The Delaware Bankruptcy Court today approved USA Rugby's debtor plan and the sport's National Governing Body will now proceed to its post-bankruptcy phase.
The tipping point for USA Youth AND High School's members to all get on board with USA Rugby appears to have been just that little bit of wiggle room in negotiations, and perhaps a pervading feeling that having a central National Governing Body is still something most members want.
USA Rugby has updated its Return to Play Guidelines.
