The choice of the venue isn't terribly surprisingly given the fact that the Eagles tried to host their home match against Canada last year in Atlanta. Glendale had been a rumored possibility but with the choice of Atlanta the threat of snow has been removed. Atlanta is a growing hotbed or rugby led by the program at Life University. The stadium holds nearly 9,000 and it is expected that it will come close to selling out for the match.
The series between the U.S. and Uruguay begins on March 22nd down in Montevideo. The winner of the series will directly advance to the Rugby World Cup in Pool B with South Africa, Samoa, Scotland, and Asia 1 (almost certainly Japan).
