NOLA Gold Rugby, the locally based Major League Rugby (MLR) team, reignited the event schedule in early 2019 by becoming a home team partner at the Shrine on Airline. NOLA Gold Rugby continues to be a valued partner of ASM Global.
The New Orleans Rugby Football Club (NORFC) was established in 1973. Since the team’s creation, they have become a stand-out for U.S. rugby in the Deep South, creating an outstanding example both on and off the pitch. NOLA Gold has built off the successes of NORFC and entered its next measure of competition at the highest level of rugby in the USA: Major League Rugby.
NOLA Gold has brought professional rugby to New Orleans and is the pinnacle of the sport in the American Southeast. They continue to develop local, national and international talent to a world-class level of play and professionalism and strive to deliver an exciting on-field product and great fan experience, all while providing an aspirational destination for young rugby athletes and rugby fans.
