I find it incredible that Major League Rugby teams dont offer kids ticket prices. Thats almost unheard of in the UK.

A child can normally watch Cardiff Blues from around £6-7.

To be fair to Seattle, they're selling out their games so they probably shouldn't be offering kids prices until they have a bigger capacity.

That’s nice that they’re paying kids to come to games. They should increase the price.

Definitely need the help but it’s a shame it’s such a slow trickle of new players. Will be hard to integrate everyone

In that podcast the owner of Austin said the fee for joining the league is 4 million USD, up from 0.5 million, which was in the beginning.

The League doesn’t pick team location, the investors do. If an investor comes along then there may well be a team in Vancouver (less sure about Alberta), but there won’t be until that point.

If the 2020 Major League Rugby starts in mid February, can the Americas Rugby Championship continue to be played in February-March?

People have stated that the ARC may move. If it does it puts the US on a SH international schedule, but as I've stated before there is zero chance of becoming a commercial success up here if that happens.

True, but I expect that thing is also dead in the water.

We'll see. I think there's as much of a chance that the RFU position is about seeing if the can get more out of the deal than some attempt to just purely scupper it.
