Inaugural Rugby Bowl Comes to WestWorld of Scottsdale in 2014

Awards & Events | 4 Dec, 2013 |

Getting bored with regular old basketball and football games? Brush off that Dorito dust from your hands and hop on your Harley — ’cause there’s a new extreme sport in town.

From the extreme-sport loving producers of The Polo Party and The Hottest Race on Earth comes a new event that puts quite the twist on a traditional spectator sport.

We’re talking about The Rugby Bowl: Spikes & Spokes, which goes down on April 12, 2014, at 1:10 p.m. at WestWorld of Scottsdale. Event spokespeople tell us one of the world’s most popular sports — rugby (the game of football played without helmets or pads and the newest Olympic sport) — meets the rolling thunder of motorcycles.

Hundreds of the hottest bikes in Arizona will growl along the field, while the nationally-ranked team from Arizona State University will take on the No. 1 ranked team and defending college champions from Brigham Young University.

“The ASU Rugby Program is very proud to be part of the First Annual Rugby Bowl and showcase our talents. Our rugby season gets going just as the American football season ends, so it is a great way to continue the enthusiasm whether one is just getting to know rugby or is already an old pro,” said ASU Head Rugby Coach Gary Lane.

Expect top-notch entertainment and hospitality. Gates open at 11:30 a.m. with kick-off starting at 1:10 p.m. on Saturday, April 12th. Rugby fans who arrive on motorcycle will receive free general admission. Fans can choose from a general admission ticket, tailgating option or relax in one of several tents including a shaded mid-field VIP tent, a reserved Arizona State University tent or non-alcoholic reserved Brigham Young University tent. A VIP Sky Box option is also available for large parties and groups. Those interested in corporate sponsorships should contact Jennifer Moser at

Rugby fans will also enjoy cuisine from a variety of the Valley’s favorite food trucks, as well as some great local brews from an on-site shaded Beer Garden. Then stay for the on-site after party with entertainment by The Keltic Cowboys.
