Chicago Sports Commission Business of Sport Speaker Series
Upcoming Business of Sport Speaker Series: Rugby on the Rise
Rugby, an already well-established international sport, is growing. From the attendance record-setting match between the New Zealand All Blacks and USA Rugby Eagles at Soldier Field in 2014, to its re-introduction to the Olympics this year, rugby is experiencing a surge in recognition and participation. A hotbed for the fastest growing sport in the US, Chicago is a city providing opportunity to contribute to rugby's rise - through youth initiatives, increased sponsor engagement, and access to a passionate sports fan base.
Join us November 3rd for a discussion on the rise of rugby, and how Chicago and the sport can capitalize on the upcoming Rugby Weekend to continue growing the game's popularity in the US and abroad.
Special Guest Panelists:
Philip Brown, Chief Executive Officer, Irish Rugby Football Union
