City of Tukwila Continue Partnership with Seawolves for 2023
TUKWILA, WASHINGTON (April 18th, 2023) – The Seattle Seawolves and the City of Tukwila have announced the renewal of their partnership for the 2023 Major League Rugby (MLR) season.
“The City of Tukwila has been a wonderful partner to the Seawolves, and we could not be more excited to continue our collaborative partnership,” said Seawolves CEO, Brian Jones. “Tukwila has been our home since the inception of Major League Rugby in 2018 and we look forward to continuing to strengthen our roots in the community and growing awareness of the sport of rugby ahead of the Rugby World Cup coming to the United States in 2031 (Men’s Rugby World Cup) & 2033 (Women’s Rugby World Cup).”
The City of Tukwila is home to Starfire Sports, a massive multi-field campus nestled along the Green River where the Seawolves train and play home matches in front of 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.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with the Seattle Seawolves,” stated Mayor Allan Ekberg. “Since Starfire opened in 2003, the city has been the epicenter of excitement for soccer, lacrosse, and rugby. The Seawolves are a family friendly activity that adds to the excitement at Starfire and the city.”
New to the partnership this year is the placement of the Experience Tukwila wordmark on the back of the Seawolves jerseys. As Mayor Ekberg noted, “The Tukwila community has figuratively had the Seawolves’ back since the team founding, now we literally have their back.”
