Midwood: Introducing The Brooklyn Kings Rugby Team

Attention sports fans!

Our beloved Brooklyn Nets’ season has come to a close, but never fear. Fans looking to cheer on a local team can now head to Midwood Athletic Complex to watch the Brooklyn Kings Rugby Team.

This is the first season that the Brooklyn Kings are members of the USA Rugby League. The team consists of 13 players instead of the usual 15 and this rugby is a mix of traditional rugby and American football.

After the opening game, spectators, fans and players alike are heading to Kent Ale House in Williamsburg to either drown their sorrows or celebrate. We hope it’s to celebrate!

Tickets are $5 and kids under 15 get in for free.
