Major League Rugby is the highest level of American rugby.
Rugby is one of the fastest growing sports in the United States and one of the most popular sports in the world. Rugby’s domestic growth and wide-reaching global fan base combine to create a unique environment for a professional league in the American market. The US rugby story is uniquely American from how the game spread from the Northeast across the frontier regions to the West Coast, to an underdog Olympic title, to being championed by thousands of local men’s, women’s and youth clubs across the country today. Major League Rugby will build on the US rugby story by uniting these fans under a common banner as rugby enters the American sports mainstream.
MLR will reinvigorate the American rugby development pathway. By creating outreach programs to bring new players to the game and high-performance pathways to keep the best athletes in the sport, MLR will create a competitive environment to push the American game to the next level. Growing the game of rugby is at the core of the MLR model.
MLR will create local destinations where rugby fans and families can come together to celebrate the highest levels of the American game. MLR stadia will be gathering places for rugby fans and local communities to come together around the game.
By connecting the national to the local, MLR will invite America to join the unique, vibrant rugby family. MLR will feature current internationals and provincial all-stars from top rugby nations. Professionals from around the world will join the best domestic players in a professional rugby competition that will showcase the best that American rugby has to offer.
