If you haven't heard, Atlanta is getting a brand new Major League Rugby team in 2020. Atlanta is becoming fast fans of Atlanta United so we're all about major league teams. Let's hope we can achieve the same team spirit with Rugby ATL. The Atlanta rugby team will be facing off with Life University this weekend and you can attend for only $5.

The 404, the newly commenced Southest Regional Development team, is founded on a purpose of developing the people and the game of rugby in the South. The new Rugby ATL team will combine The 404, Life University Men's Rugby and members from five additional southern states: Florida, Alabama, the Carolinas and Tennessee.

The southern mix aims to create a team represented by talented staff, coaches and players. ATL Rugby will debut on Feb. 9 at home against Utah. You can check out the full schedule online.

The second round of the pre-season "Southern Derby" will kick off this Saturday (Nov. 9) at 6 p.m. in a match between #1 seeded Atlanta-based team, The 404 and Division 1 USA Club National Champions, Life University. The two evidently talented teams definitely put on a nail-biting performance at the first Southern Derby so you can expect more edge-of-your-seat excitement this weekend.

Join in on the rugby spirit and support our new team at the Life University's Lupo Field, which will be the home stadium for Rugby ATL.

Tickets are only $5 and there will be food available from Sandra's Southern Catering, Hemis Hawaiian BBQ and King of Pops. Test your throwing skills with corn hole too and don't forget to sport your whitest attire because the game is a "white out." Get there early because the first 500 attendants will receive a free ATL Rugby t-shirt. 

Show your support for our newest professional team and let's hope the positive vibes score us another successful newby like Atlanta United (We still love them even though they lost to Toronto last week). Speaking of, you may "casually" bump into ATL UTD players at these Atlanta spots.
