SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Warriors and Major League Rugby (MLR) announced the 2023 schedule, which will begin for the Warriors on February 18.

During the 2023 season, the Utah Warriors will play 16 matches, including eight matches scheduled at Zions Bank Stadium.

“We are excited to have the 2023 Schedule in hand and we are looking forward to getting to work and preparing for this season,” said Warriors’ Head Coach Greg Cooper. “I know the boys are eager to get back onto the pitch and into the weight room in order to put on a show for Warriors Nation this season and compete for a Major League Rugby Championship in 2023.”

The Warriors will begin the season in San Diego against former Warriors and league MVP Mikey Te’o and the Legion on February 18, 2023. Their home opener will be the following week when they host the Dallas Jackals on February 25, 2023.

“Major League Rugby’s sixth season in North America is right around the corner,” said Commissioner George Killebrew. “We are confident that this season is going to be even more thrilling and engaging for fans than the last. As the game expands to Chicago on a professional level, February 17 will mark an exciting time for the league, its teams, rugby enthusiasts, and sports lovers alike.”
