About Infinity Park
A decade ago, Glendale’s leaders developed a bold plan:
The future of the city would be built around the sport of rugby.
At the time, rugby was one of the best sporting secrets in the United States. Today, the secret is out. More than 1 million Americans play the game, and even more follow it. Infinity Park is Colorado’s rugby epicenter and a premier setting for rugby in the country showcasing the top-ranked amateur Glendale Merlins and now professional Glendale Raptors. Each year, teams from around the world travel to play in the state-of-the-art, 4,000 seat stadium. The stadium anchors the larger Infinity Park complex, consisting of an event center, a sports center, and plenty of open space.
Who are the Glendale Merlins?
And what happened to the Glendale Raptors?
In 2017, nearly all Raptors teams will begin the next chapter of the Glendale rugby story as they begin play under a new identity — the Glendale Merlins. These teams will continue to build on the tradition and reputation they’ve built for themselves. The elite men’s team, playing as Merlins for Fall 2017, will continue to use the Raptors name as they enter Major League Rugby as a founding team in 2018.
