SeaWolves and City of Tukwila Announce Partnership
Tukwila, WASH. - The Seattle Seawolves and the City of Tukwila announced today a new partnership for the 2020 Major League Rugby (MLR) season.
"We couldn't be more excited to partner with the city that's been the Seawolves home since the launch of Major League Rugby in 2018," said Seawolves president, Shane Skinner. "We've made so many great memories in the City of Tukwila, including two championship seasons, and we look forward to partnering with Tukwila, as we work to bring a third MLR championship home to our fans."
The City of Tukwila is home to Starfire Sports, a massive multi-field complex nestled along the Green River where the Seawolves train and play home matches to sell-out crowds. Tukwila's strong commitment to fostering the growth of both professional and amateur sports makes it the ideal location for the Seawolves training facility and home pitch.

Fans can expect a series of player appearance at a variety of family friendly events around the City of Tukwila, plus two Official Away Match Viewing Parties at Virtual Sports, a facility that uses the most advanced technology on the market to create an environment that's fun for everyone with activities such as laser tag, putt putt and virtual reality fun.
