Our 8th Annual Rugby Legends Dinner will take place on Wednesday March 23rd at the NYAC from 6pm-10:30pm.

It’s a really exciting time for Rugby in America. New York will have just hosted the first premiership overseas game, Pro Rugby is starting in April and both the USA Men’s and Women’s teams head to Rio aiming for Olympic success.

We’re delighted that, for the first time, our main beneficiary will be the USA Rugby Trust, the philanthropic arm of USA Rugby. The Trust is committed to making rugby fun and accessible at all levels of play across the country. Many representatives will be here from USA Rugby including CEO Nigel Melville. We’re also delighted to welcome back Play Rugby USA as a beneficiary partner.

The event also follows the 6Nations and we have several past stars of that event to recap the tournament. Jeremy Guscott (England, British Lions) returns to host and he is joined by former England colleague and current England RFU President and World Cup Winner, Jason Leonard.

We’re also delighted to welcome to their first Captain’s Knock dinner, Shane Williams (Wales & British Lions) and Shane Horgan (Ireland & British Lions). Dan Lyle also returns as US Legend and current tournament Director of the USA Rugby Sevens in Las Vegas.

This annual event regularly attracts 300 international business leaders. To get a flavor of how fun the event is please take a look at last year’s photos here.
