As was announced previously – it will be a two conference set-up, split between East and West conferences. The East conference will comprise of Rugby ATL, New England Free Jacks, NOLA Gold, Old Glory DC, Rugby United New York, Toronto Arrows. The Western Conference will now feature six teams Austin Gilgronis, Houston SaberCats, LA Giltinis, San Diego Legion, Seattle Seawolves, Utah Warriors.
The season kicks off on March 20th with all 12 teams competing on the opening weekend. The season will be spread out over the course of an 18 week period culminating with the championship final on August 1st. CBS will continue to be the broadcaster for games.
