Glendale’s Infinity Park – the ideal tournament venue.
The amenities at Infinity Park were built specifically with the great sport of rugby in mind. The venue boasts state-of-the-art practice, training and recovery facilities, as well as the only official rugby stadium in the Unites States.
The completion of the complex at Infinity Park has transformed the small town of Glendale, Colo. into RugbyTown USA, the nation’s premier destination for a variety of adrenaline pumping 7s and 15s, men’s and women’s, local, national and international rugby tournaments.
Visitors to Infinity Park do more than support their favorite rugby teams. They also help support Glendale’s small business, franchised restaurants and hotels, which in turn, helps drive the local economy and enrich the community. This is result is something that Mayor Mike Dunafon had envisioned when sitting on the community committee responsible for the establishment of Infinity Park.
Fifteens, or union, is arguably the most widely known version of the game of rugby.
2013 marks the sixth year that USA Rugby granted Infinity Park the privilege of hosting the Men’s Club National Championships. Hometown fans were especially thrilled in 2011 when the Raptors won the National Championship title for Division I.
Two Elite Cup tournament matches, including the final, and the NSCRO National Championship tournament were also held at Infinity Park in 2013.
In the past the venue has played host to the USA rugby Men’s and Women’s collegiate All-Starts (2008-2011, and 2012 respectively), the Churchill Cup (2009, 2010), and the North American 4, which featured the top two Canadian and top two U.S. teams.
The facilities at Infinity Park also serve as a training camp location for the USA Eagles, and as a test match venue for the men’s and women’s national teams.
Sevens, or seven-a-side, is the newest Olympic sport set to kick off at the next summer games in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro.

Infinity Park annually hosts the Serevi RugbyTown 7s and Armed Forces 7s tournaments in the summer.
