2016 Women’s Premier League Begins in September

Women's Premier League Rugby | Women's Rugby

The 2016 Women’s Premier League (WPL) kicks off Saturday, September 10. The two-time defending Champion Glendale Raptors are part of a trio of matches that will kick off the season.

Matches will be played over nine weeks with the Berkeley All Blues, Oregon Rugby Sports Union, Raptors, and San Diego Surfers playing in the Blue Conference, while Atlanta Harlequins, DC Furies, New York Rugby, and Twin Cities Amazons are all participating in the Red Conference.

The WPL Championships will be held Nov. 11-13 at Life University in Marietta, Ga. All eight teams will play two matches apiece during the Championship weekend. The league’s top four squads will factor into a Nov. 11 Semifinal, with the winners meeting for a Championship fixture Nov. 13. Meanwhile, the bottom half of the competition will duke it out over the same dates in an attempt to better position themselves in the final standings, and jumpstart next year’s season.
