“The opportunity to see the All Blacks’ brand of rugby here in the States cannot be missed,” USA Rugby Chief Executive Officer Nigel Melville said. “We’ve given fans of both teams and rugby in general a reason to make the trip to Chicago with fair-priced tickets and we are expecting a sell-out crowd at Soldier Field.”
