2019 Bowl Series

Tournament Location

@UBowlSeries The Bowl Series is back for 2019. URugby expects 10 collegiate bowl matches and as many high school matches.

The Bowl Series is Back

The Bowl Series is a collegiate championship rugby event presented by URugby that started in 2014 and ran through 2016. For 2019, The Bowl Series is back. This year's event will run for 3 days from Friday November 22nd through Sunday November November 24th. The event has the history of offering the very best in high school and college rugby as conference champions and select elite sides go head-to-head in this premier rugby invitational.

The 2014 Bowl Series inaugural event was held at Charlotte’s Rugby Athletic Center. This series consisted of matched, in traditional bowl format, the very best college rugby teams from around the country.

The 2015 Bowl Series was fantastic! The University of Delaware visited Iona College's campus for one of ten bowl matches in 2015. Nine other matches were held in Charlotte, NC. The 2015 event was marked by close contests and dramatic finishes, including the down-to-the-wire Southeastern Collegiate Rugby Conference Championship and an Indiana-Kutztown game Alex Goff called an "instant classic".

The exuberance that only the Bowl Series provides was held in New Rochelle, NY on the campus of Iona College. The  2016 Bowl Series featured host Iona College, Stony Brook University, American International College and University of Delaware amoung others. The event will be electric! High school sevens matches were featured in 2016 as six teams acted as 1/2 time entertainment, but ended up taking over the show.

About Fifteens Rugby

Fifteens rugby, the progenitor of modern American football, is a fast-paced contest played with 15 players per side. Balls are passed back frequently as players attempt to "touch down" the ball into the try zone, creating near-non-stop action on the field. Though mainly played as a club sport in the U.S., rugby is rapidly gaining popularity and even varsity status at many schools. The sport of rugby returns to the Summer Olympics in 2016 for the first time in 92 years.
