Fog Rugby to Host 2 National Tourneys

The San Francisco Fog RFC is pleased and honored to announce that we will host two prestigious national rugby tournaments later this year.

First up is the Women’s Sevens National Invitational Tournament, slated for August 14-16, 2009. Held on Treasure Island in San Francisco Bay, the Women’s Sevens Nationals brings together sixteen teams to determine which is the best women’s 7s side in the country.

Dana Creager, fresh from the USA national team, will coordinate the invitations and seedings of the Sevens tourney. The event coincides with the Men’s USA National Seven’s Championship, which will be hosted by San Francisco Golden Gate RFC.

Then, on November 6-8, 2009, the same Treasure Island location will be host to the USA Rugby Women’s Club Championships. It’s here that the 2009 national women’s champions in Super League, Division I, and Division II will be determined.

The pitches of the Gaelic Athletic Association will serve as the venue for both events, with Fog Rugby’s own Job Corp Field in service as a warmup and practice pitch.
