Still Time for Rugby Night in America
Off The Field - US Rugby Foundation News

San Diego, Calif. - There's still time to get your rugby club's bar or restaurant signed up for Rugby Night in America which will take place on Tuesday night, September 27, 2011. Rugby Night in America will coincide with the last Pool C match for the Eagles at the Rugby World Cup as they take on Italy. The USRFF is asking all rugby players to frequent their rugby club's bars and restaurants on the night of Tuesday, September 27 to watch the rebroadcast of the USA-Italy match on Universal Sports at 8:00 pm EDT. Each establishment that participates in the fundraiser will be donating 10% of their sales on the night of Tuesday, September 27 to the USRFF for its A Ball 4 All Campaign.

Proceeds from each establishment will be used to purchase rugby balls for the kids in those specific areas. In addition, the establishment that raises the most money will receive an additional 20 balls for the young rugby players in that area.

Also, those in attendance at participating locations will have the opportunity to win two tickets to the 2012 USA 7s Tournament in Las Vegas. That's two tickets for Friday, Saturday and Sunday's action, courtesy of USA Sevens, LLC.

Once an establishment signs up to be a part of Rugby Night in America, the USRFF will do its part by encouraging all the clubs in your area to frequent your bar for the USA-Italy clash. The USRFF will also provide two unique posters (Rugby Night in America Poster1) and (Rugby Night in America Poster2) tailored for your establishment for you to display to help promote the event.
