World Rugby is Coming to RFK Stadium this Summer

Events DC is excited to announce RFK Stadium will host a World Rugby match between the Welsh Rugby Union and the South Africa Springboks on Saturday, June 2.  With 230 rugby clubs, the Washington, DC-metro area is the second largest region, per capita, in the U.S. for USA Rugby membership and the number one area for the growth of women’s rugby. 

For the first-time ever, these two longtime rivals, will square off in a neutral country. Currently ranked No. 6 in the World Rugby rankings, Wales will make their first appearance on American soil since a contest with the United States in 2009, while No. 5 ranked South Africa will return after a 17-year absence. 

Tickets for the Wales vs. South Africa rugby match will go on sale to the general public on March 13th.
