Seattle set to host 2014 USA Rugby Club 7s Championships

BOULDER, Colo. – USA Rugby is proud to announce Starfire Sports in Tukwila, Wash., as the venue for the 2014 USA Rugby Emirates Airline Men’s and Women’s Club 7s Championships Aug. 9-10.

The event will be hosted by Seattle OPSB Rugby, who is now an affiliate club of Saracens, now known as Seattle Saracens. In 2013, Seattle tied the record for most Men’s Club 7s championship titles by earning its sixth championship.

Starfire Sports includes a 4,500-seat stadium and 11 outside fields, and is a world-class facility that houses the training headquarters of the Seattle Sounders (MLS). Located just minutes from the Seattle airport, the complex will include a beer garden, fan zone, and apparel sales. Additionally, the complex will host a youth jamboree and high school invitational tournament (Serevi Cup), both of which will be powered by Serevi Rugby.

The 2013 Men's Club 7s event saw 2014 host Seattle top the Denver Barbarians in the Championship Final. Eagle Miles Craigwell and AIG Men's Junior All-American Ben Pinkelman are featured in this photo.

The 2014 Club 7s Championship will be just the third time Seattle has hosted a championship rugby event (1999 Club 7s; 2012 Super League Final), and just the fifth time USA Rugby has brought a championship final to the Pacific Northwest.

Overall, this year’s event will be the 30th edition of the men’s tournament and the fourth edition of the women’s tournament. With 30 years of history, the event has shown itself to be the premier club sevens tournament in the American rugby landscape.

All matches will be streamed live on USA Rugby TV, with further broadcast and commentator details to be available shortly. Tickets are available at $10 for a one-day pass or $15 for a two-day pass. Family four-packs are also available for $50 and include four two-day passes.
