Old Glory DC Signs Canadian International Luke Campbell
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Washington, DC (January 26, 2021) — Old Glory DC is proud to announce the signing of Canadian International, Luke Campbell.
With thirteen international matches to his name, Campbell comes to Washington after spending the 2019 MLR season with Toronto Arrows. The Arrows finished that season with eleven wins and five losses, seeding the Canadian team into the MLR playoffs, where Toronto lost to the 2019 MLR Champion Seattle Seawolves in the first round.
Hailing from Victoria, BC, Campbell plays at eight-man and made his international debut with Canada against the United States on February 10th, 2018. In 2019, Campbell had the honor of representing Canada during the Rugby World Cup. He made his first World Cup appearance against Italy on September 29th in Canada’s opening match of the tournament. Campbell will rejoin Canadian teammates Doug Fraser and Ciaran Hearn with Old Glory for the 2021 season.
“I was watching all the games from last year and chatting with Head Coach Andrew Douglas and Ciaran about the team before I even started talking to Andrew, and they spoke very highly about the whole experience,” said Campell. “from the city to the players and the organization as a whole. The long layoff due to Covid 19 has only accentuated that excitement. I’m looking forward to getting down to DC and finally meeting everyone.”
Aside from training and playing for Old Glory DC in the upcoming season, Campbell is most excited to find out what the Greater Washington area has to offer.
“I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t excited to experience DC. Everyone I have talked to has raved about it. The famous sites and museums are something that will be really cool to go out and explore. Lastly, people I talked to who played for and against Old Glory always talked about how great the atmosphere at games was last year. Hoping the fans follow the team to Segra field so I get to experience that as well.”
