Nations Cup less than two weeks away

BOULDER, Colo. – The 2013 Nations Cup is less than two weeks away from kickoff with Canada, England, and South Africa set to face the Women’s Eagles at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley July 30, August 3, and August 7. Glendale’s Infinity Park will host Finals Day August 10.

As they have already qualified for the 2014 Women’s Rugby World Cup, the Nations Cup will serve as the final set of international fixtures for the Eagles.

“We built a great foundation for the team culture when we played against France and now we can really grow on that with these matches,” Head Coach Pete Steinberg said of the recent three-test series against Les Bleus in California. “With the schedule resembling a World Cup schedule, it helps us in setting player expectations and how we need to handle ourselves on and off the field at a major competition.”

The first three match days in Greeley will be free to attend for fans, while tickets for Finals Day at Infinity Park will be $10 for adults and $5 for children ages four to 12. Children under the age of four will be admitted free of charge.

All Nations Cup matches will be live-streamed, as well. The first six matches from University of Northern Colorado will be available on USA Rugby TV, with the Infinity Park at Glendale website hosting the feed for both matches on Finals Day.
