CHICAGO - World-class rugby is coming back to Chicago.

Next Fall, four of the best teams the sport has to offer will square off in what's being billed as "The Rugby Weekend."

The USA Eagles and the Maori All Blacks kick things off on Friday, November 4th at Toyota Park. Then on Saturday, the New Zealand All Blacks and the Irish National Team renew their historic rivalry at Soldier Field.

In 2014, more than 61,000 fans came out to see the World Cup Champion All Blacks take on Team USA. This time around, organizers expect an even larger crowd as the Irish attempt to beat the All Blacks for the first time in team history.

Tickets for "The Rugby Weekend" go on sale April 1st.
