Infinity Park in Glendale, Colo. has been selected as the tournament site for the U.S. Armed Forces Rugby 7s Championship from Aug. 18 & 19, featuring All-Star teams representing the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard.
“We are honored that the US Military teams have agreed to co-locate their annual championship here at Infinity Park with our first International Defense 7s tournament,” said Mike Dunafon, Mayor of the City of Glendale in a press release.
The two-day event will be played in conjunction with the inaugural International Defense 7s tournament, with international military teams from the British Army, Australian Army, British Royal Air Force, and the French Armed Forces. The two tournaments will conclude on Sunday, Aug. 19 with the U.S and international teams facing off for Gold, Silver and Bronze places.
The International Defense 7s will be raising money for the Homeland Defenders Fund, a nonprofit organization providing support for Colorado Veterans and their families.
