The excitement of Rugby League is being brought to the USA. There will be an action packed night for spectators at this inaugural event. The New Zealand Rugby League team are packing their bags and suiting up to play in the USA. The event will take place at the Mile High Stadium on June 23rd. The match between the Kiwis and England is a test game, the first Rugby League game in the USA to date.
There are two different Rugby teams, Rugby League and Rugby Union. The Union will be most familiar to the USA, as they have a team in the league and participate in the World Cup that occurs every 4 years. These teams consist of the best players from each country. This test match will introduce Rugby league to the country, and will hopefully spike the interest of players and fans alike, all over the U.S.
The opportunity to become the primary sponsor of the New Zealand Rugby League arouse in 2008, right before the Rugby League World Cup and PIRTEK New Zealand could not pass up on the partnership. The Kiwi’s ended up winning the game that year! PIRTEK NZ has been involved with the team ever since. This relationship spawned from one of the PIRTEK core values of giving back to the community we serve. With the sponsorship, PIRTEK was able to help the team and its followers gain necessary funds to support the game they all love so much.
We will be cheering from afar, Go Kiwis Go!
