Warriors Unveil Mural Dedicated To ‘Greater Utah Community’

HERRIMAN – The Utah Warriors revealed a brand new mural in honor of the Beehive State before the team’s match against the New England Free Jacks.

The Warriors hosted the Free Jacks at Zions Bank Stadium on Friday, March 31.

Before kickoff, the Major League Rugby franchise unveiled a one-of-a-kind “dedicated to the greater Utah community” and the “Utah Built” campaign run by the club this season. “Utah Built” was created by the organization to “celebrate our community, serve as a reflection of our heritage and inspire the future.”

“The Utah Warriors identity draws its strength from the history of our great state. From the Native American settlers to the pioneers to the innovators and successful businesses that have made Utah a center of commerce. The people in Utah have made this state the crossroads of the west. And that’s what being ‘Utah Built’ means for the Warriors,” Warriors CEO Kimball Kjar told KSLSports.com. “It means that we carry that legacy. My identity and everything that we do as an organization, on and off the field, we’re committed because of the dedicated history and past of all those who have gone on before. And we continue to forge ahead with that same spirit…that’s what Utah built for us.”

The mural was created by renowned artist William “Bill” Louis.

The Warriors say that the mural was “commissioned to represent the mission, ethos, and pride that we all bestow as Utahns combined with the hard work and innovative spirit that serve as the heritage foundation of this great state, what we refer to as Utah Built.”

Friday’s match will be the only time that the mural will be visible to the public. After the match, the mural will be moved and become a “centerpiece” of the Warriors’ facilities.

The Warriors entered their match against New England with a 3-2 record to start the 2023 season.

Utah currently owns a positive differential having outscored its opponents by a combined total of one point through five matches. The Warriors have earned 14 points thus far and sit in fourth place in MLR’s Western Conference standings.

Utah opened its season with a road loss to San Diego. The Warriors bounced back with consecutive wins over the Dallas Jackals (home opener) and Chicago Hounds. After two straight victories, the Warriors fell to NOLA Gold. Utah is coming off a 47-19 blowout victory over the Toronto Arrows.

The Warriors’ match against the Free Jacks is broadcast on FS2. New England is currently in first place in the Eastern Conference with a 4-1 record this season.
