Did you know that rugby is the fastest growing sport in the US? And we are extremely lucky to have one of only 13 Major League Rugby teams right here in Jefferson Parish! NOLA Gold Rugby will kick off its 4th season in March of 2021. All home games will be played at the newly remodeled "Gold Mine on Airline" (aka the Shrine on Airline.) It has been completely transformed from a baseball field to a state-of-the-art rugby pitch.
Don't know a lot about rugby? That's ok! Like American Football, rugby ticks all the boxes that adrenaline sports fans love; power, pace and evasive skills. Rugby was founded in 1823 in England, and American football actually derived from Rugby with the introduction of the line of scrimmage, touchdown and down and distance rules. If you like American Football, definitely come check out a Nola Gold Rugby game. You won't be disappointed!
The gameday experience is amazing, featuring second-line parades, costumes, a party shack, live music and so much more! Check out this short video to see all the fun of a NOLA Gold gameday. Gates will open 2 hours early for tailgate activities in the Fan Zone.
