5 Reasons to Get Excited for the Emirates Airline Summer Series

    Spring is here, winter is a thing of the past and that bright breezy summer weather is just around the corner. Where better to spend your June Saturdays than under the warm 80 degree Denver and Houston sun? That's right. Not only is the Emirates Airline Summer Series coming to two of the most temperate locations to spend your weekend, but during the best part of the season. It's time to grab your flip flops, throw on some shades and watch the USA Men's National Team at Dick's Sporting Good's Park and BBVA Compass Stadium.

    Average Temperature in June
    Denver: 86 degrees
    Houston: 88 degrees

    ICYMI, the last time we took the pitch for the Americas Rugby Championship, we made history. After a 5-0 run, we clinched our second consecutive title in tournament history. And, as the only team to have done so by winning all five matches, we're bringing a vibrant energy to amplify every USA chant in the crowd. Kicking things off with our first match against No. 19 Russia in Denver, we'll be hunting to start the summer strong with our fifth consecutive win over the Russians. Go ahead and wear that red, white and blue face paint, there's no better way to cheer on the home team.

    After an impressive performance to start the season, we rose to No. 15 in the World Rugby Rankings, our highest position since the 2015 Rugby World Cup. With Scotland currently ranked No. 6 in the world, and BBVA Compass Stadium being favorable for the Men's Eagles, anything is possible. Rise in the rankings? This won't be one to miss.

    Not many sporting events can give a family of four that pitch perfect (get it?) view at an affordable cost. Tickets to see the USA Men's Eagles in Denver start at only $20, with a seat at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston starting at only $23. That's a full-fledged international event, a beautiful summer Saturday and an experience with family and friends for less than $100. Score.

    We come to watch the match but we relish in the treats. Thankfully, Dick's Sporting Goods Park and BBVA Compass Stadium are not your average concessionaires. Yes, it's true, you can still find the classic snacks and ice-cold beverages throughout the concourse; but, for a real treat, you can also visit Eighteen76 at Dick's Sporting Good's Park and Levy Restaurants' expanded offerings at BBVA Compass Stadium. With plasma screen televisions, sandwiches, wraps and salads, Eighteen76 amplifies the rugby experience. And, with an extensive menu at BBVA Compass Stadium, you can pick anything from tacos to sushi, to BBQ and even a wide array of gluten free items. Hungry yet?

    Nothing beats a Rugby Saturday with family, friends and the USA Men's National Team on home soil. With beautiful summer weather, an undefeated 2018 thus far and an opportunity to rise in the World Rankings, the stage is set for an exciting Summer Series. Add to that an affordable ticket price and a stadium experience fit for a foodie, these two events knock it out of the park.

    Don't miss the 2018 Emirates Airline Summer Series.
