Launched in early 2017, AEG Rugby’s objective is to drive the sport of Rugby Union in the US, from games hosted in America to bringing American Sports expertise to the world of rugby. This will include AEG Rugby becoming the promoter for a number of games that will involve bringing professional Rugby from across the world to the US to help show case the sport. We are working with a number of governing bodies and leagues to deliver this as well as USA Rugby and broadcaster NBC.
AEG recently announced a partnership with Premiership Rugby (England’s top flight Rugby league) to promote in season games in the US over the next 4 seasons and will launch with Newcastle vs Saracens in Philadelphia on September 16th 2017 and will be the centre piece of a wider rugby event promoted by AEG.
In addition, AEG Rugby is in current conversations with Super Rugby teams (AUS/SA/NZ), a number governing bodies around international matches (similar to the New Zealand vs Ireland game last year) and World Rugby.
