Tailgating Rugby Style
The NOLA GOLD features Rugby Tailgating with a New Orleans twist. Music. Great food & drinks. Friends and family. Please come join us to celebrate the sport of rugby, and of course, our winning NOLA Gold team before all of our home games. Additional game-day themes and tailgating features will be announced weekly on Social Media.
NOLA Gold is New Orleans’ newest Major League Sports Franchise, along with the NFL Saints & NBA Pelicans. The team is part of Major League Rugby (MLR) and consists of a nice blend of local, national and international world class athletes from 9 different countries including Australian Olympian, Con Foley, and several other players from South Africa, New Zealand, Canada, Uruguay and the United States competing in this year’s World Cup in Japan.
The Gold games are action-packed and exciting for fans of all ages. Those new to the sport of Rugby can join our pregame educational session to learn the rules (Rugby 101), watch the non-stop action, hear the big hits & collisions from your seat, and then meet & greet the players after the game.
Instructions for Tailgating
Tailgaters are asked to not block the gravel roadway, so that others may load in. BBQ & Charbroiled Oyster pits, Crawfish Boils and other outside food are allowed at the tailgate. Music is also permitted, but please the volume at a level which respects other NOLA Gold tailgaters.
