The next big sports craze is about to hit Seattle Southside, Western Washington, and the United States! Major League Rugby is set to debut in the United States in 2018, and Seattle Southside will be home to one of the first teams. Say hello to the Seattle Seawolves!
The inaugural MLR season will begin in Spring of 2018, and the Seattle Seawolves will play their home matches at Starfire Stadium in Tukwila. The team will battle teams from Dallas, Kansas City, New Orleans, Salt Lake City, Minneapolis, Austin, Glendale, and Houston. The Seawolves are already making strides in the free agent market with recent additions to their roster including USA Eagles star Shalom Suniula, Air Force Captain Eric Duechle, and Olive Kilifi. Tony Healy, the former head coach of the 2017 Canadian Rugby Champions British Columbia Bears, has been announced as the Seawolves head coach.
The fast growing and exciting sport is set to benefit from the red-hot Seattle sports market and the Seawolves should feel right at home at Starfire Stadium. More details are coming soon…in the meantime, check out their website here. We look forward to Major League Rugby and can’t wait to cheer on our Seattle Seawolves right here, in Seattle Southside!
