The 1014 Rugby predict a USA Rugby Revolution.
We examine the new structures put in place. How the Olympics changed rugby forever. And we look at the exciting MLR, Major League Rugby as it starts up.
A brief history
We touch on a bit of history to put the USA Rugby scene into perspective. The fact the Men’s team has won two Olympic golds, the Women’s team a World Cup and their Men’s Sevens two tournaments since the last Sevens World Cup should not be ignored. Nor should the huge jump in sustainable numbers playing the game.
The long and the short of it is the Olympics has changed everything.
Rugby Sevens inclusion in the Olympics has captured the minds of the USA sports fan. The engagement numbers are astounding. By some metrics, the uptick in engagement whilst the Sevens were being played in Rio was 120-times; that is not 120%; 120-times!
the Olympics has changed everything
The MLR has arrived. The USA professional league kicks off this weekend. Lessons have been learnt from the last time, sustainability is near the top of the agenda and finally, the US rugby fan has a league of their own to follow.
