Penn State’s men’s and women’s rugby programs will compete for national titles next month. Both squads are going to Talen Energy Stadium in Philadelphia on June 2-4 for the Penn Mutual Collegiate Rugby 7s Championships.

The women’s team—which has won three championships at this event and took home its sixth-straight DI college national title earlier this year—will begin pool play on Friday, June 2. Knockout rounds will occur on Saturday, and the finals and consolation games are on Sunday. As for the men’s squad, pool play begins on Saturday and the playoff rounds are a day later.

Pool assignments for the women have not yet been released, while the men have been drawn into a pool with Clemson, Delaware, and the four-time defending CRC winners California.

If you are interested in attending, you can purchase tickets through the program. Additionally, portions of the tournament will be shown on NBC and NBC Sports Network. Head here for the full broadcast schedule.
