The Oklahoma City Crusaders Rugby Club will host their next home matches on Saturday, February 23 at Energy FC’s training facility at Oklahoma City-County Health Department’s Northeast Campus. The Crusaders will take on regional rival Wichita. The women’s and men’s matches will kick off at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., respectively, and there is no charge for admission.
The goal of the partnership between the two sporting organizations is to bring more use to OCCHD’s facilities, grow the sport of rugby and promote health and wellness.
“The OKC Crusaders Rugby team has been playing out of OKC for 11 years, and the OCCHD training facility will be the best field that we have used in the region which includes Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Kansas and New Mexico”, said President John White. “We could not be more excited to partner with Energy FC and OCCHD. We are looking forward to all our future opportunities together.”
OCCHD’s Northeast Campus is located at 2700 NE 63rd St., Oklahoma City, OK 73111.
