Americas Rugby

Postby victorsra » Fri, 30 Jun 2017, 19:12

Sudamérica Rugby and Rugby Americas North are having a meeting now in San Diego: http://www.sudamericarugby.org/2017/06/ ... cas-north/

The meeting is discussion the rugby in both regions prior to the "Americas Rugby" (the union that organizes the Americas Rugby Championship) meeting in August, in Miami.

In this press release it is said they will discuss new pan-american competitions.

I believe now that the main reason why there isn't a merge between both entities is the fact that they would lose votes in WR's council.

Anyway, interesting to see that the "America Rugby" is becoming an stronger organization, although I never saw simple things like a logo or a website/social media specific for the "Americas Rugby".

Says they will "explore the possibility" of promotion and relegation between the two. So it won't be in place from the start. But I can't see it frightening any of the existing teams at the moment.

2018 Americas Rugby Championship dates:

Round 1: February 10
Round 2: February 17
Round 3: February 24
Round 4: March 3
Round 5 March 10

I've heard that a resting weekend in the middle of the schedule has been proposed but wasn't approved. However the competition will start a weekend later and there won't be matches in the Super Bowl weekend.

It is official now: Santiago (Chile) will host the 2023 Pan American Games, that will have rugby sevens.

The 2019 event will be in Lima, Peru.

It will be first time South America hosts 2 Pan-American Games in a row. Also the first time Chile hosts it.

How does the World Cup qualifying series between Canada and Uruguay play into next year schedule? I'm assuming one of the games counts as the first leg of the qualifying, or are the qualifying matches separate entirely from the ARC?

Peru will have their own Estadio Charrua after the Pan Am games: http://www.sudamericarugby.org/2017/11/ ... ca-a-lima/

Nice get for the federation: two artificial fields, a grandstand for 500 people, offices, changing rooms and a gym. Colombia also got one rugby-specific stadium built in Santa Marta for the Juegos Bolivarianos. Let’s see if Chile gets something as well.

The return match in Montevideo doubles as the first round of the ARC.

About the ARC, there isn’t official confirmation but Argentina XV will host:

------> vs. Canada in Jujuy - Estadio 23 de Agosto
Hosted Georgia in 2017. Nice stadium for 20.000 fans. Summers are pretty tough but if the game is played at night it shouldn’t be a problem. A little bit of altitude so the players could get winded in the last minutes. I have some doubts about the date. The local press reported that it will be on the 24th. Canada has to play Uruguay in Montevideo on the 3rd so it seems unlikely. Can’t see them making two trips to South America.

------> vs. Chile in Ushuaia - Estadio Agustín Pichot
Hosted Brazil in 2017. Temporary bleachers for 3.500 fans. No idea about the date. The lack of capacity is compensated by the scenery.

It would have been nice to see new cities getting games (this year El Calafate was in the running for one the ARC matches). That said, both cities worked pretty well so it’s good for them to get another crack at it.

There was some money issue with the governor when they hosted Scotland in 2014. Don’t know what happened. Apparently, they want to host Wales in June: http://mundod.lavoz.com.ar/rugby/los-pu ... en-cordoba

Good to know. It would be a great place to host the Boks or the Wallabies too....

Is it that bad that you need fences surrounding your pitches ?

I think we had this conversation before. Every single soccer stadium in the country has either a fence or a pit surrounding the pitch.
