General admission tickets are on sale now at oldglorydc.com at a flat rate of $20 with discounts for children and special packages available.

“Old Glory DC is a destination to experience rugby at the highest level,” said Old Glory Chairman Chris Dunlavey. “We are more bullish than ever about our sport and our team in 2024 and we can’t wait to celebrate existing traditions and introduce new ones this season to create an unforgettable experience for our supporters, our team, and our community.”

Building off its first Major League Rugby (MLR) playoff appearance in 2023 and led by new Head Coach, Simon Cross, a former pro turned coach most recently with Dragons RFC in Wales, Old Glory welcomes back Team Captain Jamason Fa’anana-Schultz (AUS), along with Washington DC native Jack Iscaro (USA), and Old Glory veteran Danny Tusitala (NZL) to the 2024 roster. The team also added several standout players including Rob Harley (GBR), the most capped player for the Glasgow Warriors, and a stacked back three including Damien Hoyland (GBR), who has more than 100 caps with Edinburgh Rugby Club, Axel Muller (ARG) and Perry Humphreys (GBR).

“The best word to describe Old Glory in 2024 is ‘tough’,” said Cross. “We are focused on playing smart and giving our supporters the best experience possible.”
