Dell Diamond Confirmed For Austin Test

Once again the Eagles will be playing at Dell Diamond in Austin. The Austin fixture against Brazil was announced awhile ago and it was assumed that the match would be at Dell Diamond, just like last year, and now U.S.A. Rugby has confirmed that. The team got a good crowd at the event last year with over 7,000 fans turning out. This year they aren't playing Canada, with a JWRT qualifying match, so there won't be Canadian contingent in attendance but they are playing Brazil which should bring in some new fans. The match is on February 11th and tickets go on sale on Friday.

No word yet on the venue for the match against Uruguay in San Antonio. The rumor has the match at Toyota Field. It's a soccer specific stadium that has seating for roughly 8,000 fans. There are other venues in the area but Toyota Field makes the most sense. That match is set for February 4th. The other North American match for the Eagles will be against Canada on February 18th and Swangard Stadium in the Vancouver metro area.

  1. Toyota Field looks to be an almost ideal venue for the Uruguay match.
