Penn Mutual Collegiate Rugby 7s Championship – June 3rd-4th
The Penn Mutual Collegiate Rugby 7s Championship is a wonderful day of fast paced rugby in the sunshine and a great time to catch up with other PSU Alums. The CRC is the highest profile college rugby competition in the United States, with the tournament broadcast live on NBC every year. This year our goal is to have the biggest fan section of all the colleges to support both our Men’s and Women’s Teams! The Alumni Club will also be providing free t-shirts to those in the PSU fan section and hosting a morning tailgate.
Buying a 2-day pass through PSU is less expensive than buying a 1-day pass from the CRC website – and it helps the teams reach their requirement of selling several hundred tickets for participation in the event. Also, Penn State only receives credit towards the quota for selling 2 day passes. The discounted cost is why purchasing a 2-day pass is the only option available on our site.
Please use this site for all CRC ticket purchases for credit to Penn State Programs. Due to confusion in the past, our website will be how we track CRC ticket sales. Please send this link to anyone and everyone who would be interested in attending this event! The more tickets we sell, the lower the cost to the Alumni Club. Last year was the first time we sold all of our tickets! We owe this to the current players and their families as well as to our Alumni who sold tickets within their circles. Every unsold ticket results in a cost for the program. Every current player has a ticket sale requirement. If you are purchasing tickets to credit a specific player, please write that player's name in the notes section.
A few Alums who can't make the event have asked about sponsoring current players' and high school recruits’ tickets. Due to logistics this, is possible only for purchases of greater than 10 tickets. Please mark “group donation” in the note on registration form. We also appreciate donations to the club as ultimately we will be invoiced for the unsold tickets. We appreciate your generosity and your thoughtfulness!
All tickets purchased prior to May 22nd will be mailed. We will send an email when the match schedule has been set!
