Soldier Field in Chicago, IL will be the site of a historic rugby match in the fall of 2016 when the New Zealand All Blacks and Ireland rugby squads square off. One of the greatest rivalries in the intense sport will head to North America for a match that will show off two of the world’s best teams in front of an audience that might not have otherwise ever witnessed such athletes. The match between these two teams will come on November 5th. This match is being held as a part of what is being dubbed “The Rugby Weekend,” since there will be a match between the United States Eagles and the Maori All Blacks on Friday, November 4th at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, IL (suburban Chicago).
This amazing match of two legendary squads comes on the heels of a 2015 Six Nations championship for Ireland and a 2015 Rugby World Cup win for the All Blacks. This won’t be the first time that the All Blacks have played at Soldier Field. In 2014, they saw a record crowd of more than 61,500 fans in the stands as they defeated the United States Eagles.
The All Blacks are currently ranked as the No. 1 team in the world ahead of Australia, South Africa, England, and Wales. The Ireland squad is currently ranked as the seventh best team in the world. The All Blacks have long been considered the greatest rugby team in the world and have shown this each year when they go through Test matches each season. In fact, these two teams have met 28 times before and all but one match that ended in a draw concluded with the All Blacks victorious.
Soldier Field is the legendary American football stadium that is home to the Chicago Bears from the National Football League.

It is currently the oldest stadium in the NFL and over the years has seen several major events held there including soccer matches in the FIFA World Cup, FIFA Women’s World Cup, and CONCACAF Gold Cup. Much like soccer fans around the region would flock to Chicago for elite soccer matches, the same can be said of those looking to watch one of the greatest rivalries in rugby.
