Utah Touch Rugby League Kicks Off Second Season

Press Release

Salt Lake City, UT—Rugby Utah and USA Touch are joining forces again to kick-off America’s first and leading Touch Rugby League.

With divisions for the Men’s Elite and Corporate Co-Ed the Touch Rugby League is an opportunity for rugby and non-rugby enthusiasts to participate in America’s fastest growing sport and the newest Olympic sport.

“The Touch Rugby League is a fun way for people that have never played the sport to come out and experience how fun the game is,” said William Racule, Director of the Touch Rugby League, “But it’s also a good chance for the seasoned player to really play some quality, organized touch rugby.”

Matches kick-off tomorrow, July 14th at Lehi’s Xango Field at 5.20pm for both divisions.

The season runs until the end of September with champions being crowned for both divisions. This year’s champion in the Men’s Elite Division will however be given a berth to the USA Touch National Championships held in Orlando, FL October 13th-15th.

Last year’s champions for the Corporate Co-Ed Domo will look to defend their title against the likes of Silicon Slopes companies of Adobe, Proofpoint and others.

While the Untouchables on the Men’s Elite side proved to be just that last year after winning a hard fought championship match against the Utah Old Boys.

Most teams have returned, with new ones being added into the mix for the 2016 season. Overall, Racule says the TRL is growing steadily and will look to expand in the coming years.

“We’ve added some more teams this year,” he said, “Which is great. And we’ve also added more trained referees and it’s our goal to bring the TRL to other communities in Salt Lake and Davis Counties next year. We’re really excited about the future.”
