MLR’s Rise of Rugby message states that the game of rugby isn’t for just anyone; rather, it’s for everyone. It’s an experience that captivates and forms connections well beyond the final whistle. Old Glory’s home opener will amplify the message that success in the sport is not measured in wins and losses but the growth of the game and our commitment to our communities. 

 

Old Glory DC themes allow fans to partake in a 360° experience on match day and digitally, activating all Old Glory DC platforms, including our website, social media, the Road to Glory podcast, and more. Theme activations will also invite local performers, businesses, and community members to enhance the matchday with their participation. Additionally, fans can expect themed entertainment, game day elements, merch, food and beverage, and fanfare. 

 

Old Glory DC is also excited to expand its game presentation this season by upgrading its fan experience, adding:

  • A hype squad
  • In-stadium host;
  • In-game DJ;
  • An all-ages rugby 101 session 45 minutes before each home match; and
  • Mobile information desk to all home matches. 

This season will also feature the return of the Kid’s Zone, with Old Glory’s drop kick challenge, target pass challenge, face painter, and supporter sign station.
