BATTLE FOR THE MITTEN

BATTLE FOR THE MITTEN

Cooley Law School Stadium
October 19, 2018
Gates Open: 5pm | Kickoff: 7pm

To kick off rivalry weekend here in mid-Michigan, we present to you a one night event sure to get you pumped for the MSU vs. UofM football game on Saturday. In the inaugural Battle for the Mitten, Michigan State University Rugby Club welcomes the University of Michigan Rugby Club in a no holds barred rival match to be played under the lights at Cooley Law School stadium in Lansing. There will be lots of food and drinks and (most importantly) there will be big hits; without generous padding or helmets to soften the experience.

Music: “Wild West (Featuring: OD the Wordsmith)” By: Jupiter 7

RUGBY 101

is Rugby?

WHAT IN THE WORLD
IS RUGBY?

You may have preconceived notions of the sport, but there is more to it than 30 big guys running around a field clashing into one another without pads. It's a game of strength, finesse, wit, and speed. It looks like football, it's played like soccer, and it's a hell of a lot of fun. Click to watch the 4 minute video below and be sure to come see how exciting it is firsthand.

Join us before the game to participate in a interactive experience for the kids. We invite you and your kids to come out onto the field to learn the basics of rugby and meet the players up close before the game. Then the kids will take the field at halftime to play an intense match of touch rugby under the lights. Just like the pros.

This one is not just for the boys. This is rugby: Girls come out and show them you're not to be messed with.
