ST. LOUIS, Mo. - The St. Louis Crusaders, Missouri’s only all-inclusive and gay men’s rugby team, announced its fall schedule today.

The team will participate in three round robin mini-tournaments and have one regular match. The highlight of this season is the round robin taking place in Des Moines, Iowa on October 22.

“The team will join two other all-inclusive teams to foster interest in rugby and pave the way for the first all-inclusive team in Iowa,” said current president, Eddie Neuenschwander. “We look forward to joining our brothers in breaking boundaries and spreading equality in sports.”

A round robin tournament allows each participating team to play every other participant once. Each team has equal chances against all opponents and rankings are based on overall performance from all matches rather than elimination.
