The  American Collegiate Rugby Championship (ACRC7s) will bring over 20 college teams to the Virginia Beach Sportsplex April 29-May 1. Last year’s series was conservatively estimated to have had a direct economic impact of $233,376 on Virginia Beach, including drawing 531 out-of-town visitors, 88.2% of whom stayed in local hotels. The CVB's Sports Marketing team expects additional teams and a greater and an even greater positive impact from this important event in 2016.
In addition, the Naval Academy has now been added to the group of teams scrumming for the top prize, bringing with it a strong squad focused on competing against top-tier opponents.
