Midnight 7 Rugby Festival back for 2019

The Midnight 7 Rugby Festival is back for 2019.
Three elite international teams will be in attendance as well as other teams from the Lower 48. Anchorage teams will also be playing as well.

"Players love coming from all around the world to come up and play under the midnight sun. I mean, we'll be playing until about 11 pm on that first night," vice president of the Alaska Rugby Union Hunter Hamilton said.

He's talking about the Alaska Mountain Rugby grounds, where the festival is being held.

Games will be played until 11 pm on Friday, June 7th and will start as early as 9 am on Saturday, June 8th.
