December 18 2018 – Carlsbad, CA
Founded in 2017, the San Diego Legion is a professional rugby team based in San Diego, California. They compete in Major League Rugby (MLR), which is North America’s most recent major league sports unions, and is in their second season alongside 8 other teams in the United States and 1 team from Canada.
The team is currently guided by three experienced coaches – Rob Hoadley, Head Coach, Zack Test, Backs Coach and Academy Director, and Scott Murray who just joined as an additional coach for the 2019 season. SD Legion’s 2019 roster includes a total of 37 players with Nate Augspurger as their Captain. The Legion uses Torero Stadium as their home field, which is located at the University of San Diego campus.
SD Legion is currently in partnerships with the Men’s Pacific Rugby Premiership Team and Old Mission Beach Athletic Club (OMBAC), in grooming athletes who may eventually join the teams in the MLR provided they display impressive performance and discipline. Drew Gaffney, Keni Nasoqeqe, Nathan Sylvia, Tai Enosa are just some of the players that were trained by OMBAC who scored MLR contracts under the SD Legion. With these said, all aspiring rugby athletes undergo a formal process of recruitment by the SD Legion personnel.
We’re very proud and excited to announce our partnership with San Diego’s elite Major League Rugby team, the SD Legion. Fan & Fuel will be working closely with the team providing digital marketing strategies and management of their paid social media accounts. In addition to the Facebook Ad development and management our goal is to also drive additional traffic to the SD Legion website where their fans can get the latest updates about the team and purchase team merchandise.
