Fall rugby is only a few short months away, and Ivy Rugby has just released their 2016 Men’s First XV schedule. The Big Red of Cornell University start their season against the University of Pennsylvania at home on September 17. The following week, Yale University visits Ithaca as Cornell celebrates its homecoming weekend. Faded Red will also be in town as it hosts its annual alumni weekend. To join in, click here.
From there, the Cornell men hit the road for four straight games against Columbia, Harvard, Brown and Dartmouth. This will be a challenging stretch, where support from Faded Red will be crucial. If you’d like to donate to the team to support their hotel and transportation costs, please click here.
