2017 Emirates Airline Summer Series
The Emirates Airline Summer Series is a two-week home series for the USA Rugby Men's Eagles. The two marquee matchups, presented by Emirates Airlines, will begin with USA v. Ireland at Red Bull Arena outside of New York City, followed by USA v. Georgia at Fifth Third Bank Stadium outside of Atlanta. This past November, both the Men's Eagles and Ireland played in Chicago as part of a back-to-back rugby weekend series. Both matches were met by capacity crowds, totalling over 80,000 ticket sales in two days. This year, Ireland returns to play the United States in Harrison, NJ.
The Eagles qualified for Rugby World Cup 2015 the last time they were in Kennesaw, Ga., where they will finish the Emirates Airline Summer Series June 17 against 12th-ranked Georgia. The U.S. is 3-1 against the Lelos, who hosted the last matchup in the fall of 2013.
