During the Renaissance, mischievously stealing the blacksmith’s capon and escaping through a field full of onrushing Viking invaders became such a popular pastime that it became known simply as “rugby.” Witness the latest evolution in this honorable sport: today’s deal gets you tickets to the Rugby Collegiate Championship Invitational played at Crew Stadium from Friday, June 4, through Sunday, June 6. Groupon holders can obtain general-admission seating for Saturday, Sunday, or all three days of intense Division I collegiate rivalries during the 38-game tournament. There is no limit on Groupon purchases for this deal.
Sponsored by USA Sevens, the Collegiate Championship Invitational features hard-hitting action and deft athleticism rivaling anything short of fencing while riding mountain bikes down mall escalators. Showcasing the rugby sevens format, which will become an Olympic sport in 2016, the tournament features 16 teams comprised of seven players instead of the usual 15 players. Round-robin matches are composed of two shorter-than-usual halves, resulting in a jam-packed game-day schedule. Participating collegiate teams include rugby powerhouses such as California, Harvard, Navy, Penn State, Utah, and San Diego State. The CCI tournament will also be covered by NBC Sports, marking the first time collegiate rugby will be shown live by a major national network. Additionally, attendees will enjoy tasty concessions such as $1 hot dogs and reasonably priced beer, while children younger than 14 years of age can obtain complimentary tickets from the box office.
Rugby, like the metric system, is full of merit and is immensely popular abroad. Today’s deal allows fans to witness hyper-kinetic tackles, impressive dexterity, and scrums of sweaty men in a quick round-robin format, just like grabbing in-demand chicken wings at a crowded lunch buffet. Show your friends why American football is for babies with today’s Groupon to the Rugby Collegiate Championship Invitational.
