Tailgating Rugby Style
In March, NOLA GOLD will be featuring Rugby Tailgating with a New Orleans twist. From music, food, friends and family, join us to celebrate the sport, the team, The Gold before home games. Additional game day themes and tailgating features will be announced on social media.
NOLA Gold is New Orleans’ new Major League Sports Franchise following the Saints & Pelicans. The team is part of Major League Rugby (MLR) and consists of a mix of local and international world class athletes from 9 countries (including an Olympian, Con Foley).
The Gold games are action-packed and exciting for all ages. Fans can join the pregame educational session to learn the rules, watch the non-stop action, hear the big hits from your seat, and meet the players after the game.
Instructions for Tailgating
Tailgaters are asked to not block the gravel roadway, so that others may load in. Outside food, BBQ and Charbroiled Oyster pits are permitted, as well as Crawfish boils. Music is permitted, but the volume must be kept to a level that respects other tailgaters.
