The inaugural Rugby Gold Cup competition, a premiership level tournament features the top men’s’ clubs from the Midwest and Red River Competitive Regions (CRs). The competition will take place in November 2015 and March 2016.
“The Gold Cup is an important strategic growth opportunity for our elite level clubs in the Midwest and Red River CRs,” said USA Rugby Club Department Manager Erik Geib. “Each club has earned the right to compete in additional elite-level matches, while also attempting to qualify for the USA Rugby Division 1 National Championship.”
The intra-season tournament is a USA Rugby sanctioned competition and will feature the following premiership level clubs:
- 2015 USA Rugby Division 1 National Championship Runner-up and Red River CR Champion: Austin Blacks Rugby
- 2015 Red River CR Runner-Up: Dallas Rugby Football Club (the Reds)
- 2015 Midwest CR Champion: Kansas City Blues Rugby Club
