MAJOR LEAGUE RUGBY HAS DECIDED TO CANCEL THE REMAINDER OF THE 2020 SEASON AND TURN ATTENTION TO 2021

TO OUR FANS

Given the current environment involving the impact of COVID-19 on our communities, Major League Rugby, together with all the teams in the league, have made the decision to cancel the remaining matches in the 2020 season.

While we are disappointed that we won’t have the opportunity to bring Major League Rugby to New England this year, we know it is the most responsible path forward for the health and well-being of our players, staff, and community.

The journey together certainly does not stop here. These next few months we will continue to strive towards our mission of growing the game of rugby in New England. We will work to build upon the excitement and energy that exists in this community and develop a foundation upon which to build a sporting legacy. We are looking forward to developing programs such as the Free Jacks Academy, that will aim to provide the next generation of players in New England the opportunities to learn, improve, and experience a greater game of rugby at every level and ability. We will continue to work with you to better our community through the game of rugby in every way that we can.

Free Jacks Founding Memberships will extend into what is now our Inaugural 2021 Season. Your season tickets will now be valid for our 2021 home matches. Single game ticket buyers will receive a credit on their account, which can be applied towards future Free Jacks tickets or Free Jacks merchandise. To redeem your credit for Free Jacks tickets or merchandise please reach out to ticketing@freejacks.com.

We hope that every member of our community remains safe and healthy during this time. Together we will Light the Way.

MAJOR LEAGUE RUGBY HAS DECIDED TO CANCEL THE REMAINDER OF THE 2020 SEASON AND TURN ATTENTION TO 2021

DALLAS [March 18, 2020] – Major League Rugby (MLR) announced that all remaining 2020 matches are cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 global crisis and the health and safety guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

“On behalf of MLR and all of our teams, I am saddened to announce that the remainder of the 2020 season is cancelled. We believe it is ultimately the correct decision as we factored in health and safety risks for all parties,” said MLR Commissioner George Killebrew, “I want to ensure our fans that there is no doubt MLR will be back in 2021 and will emerge bigger and better than ever before. We will be using this time as an opportunity to grow all aspects of MLR and we’re excited to continue this journey into 2021, and for many years to come.”

MLR will return for the 2021 season. Aside from MLR 2020: Virtual that premiers this Friday, fans can continue to expect exciting initiatives in the coming months.
