Welcome back to Snapdragon Stadium for our final regular season game as the San Diego Legion face off against our biggest rivals, the Seattle Seawolves, on this electrifying Saturday night! It’s always thrilling to see our loyal fans filling the stands, ready to support us in what promises to be an intense and exciting match.

The Western Conference playoff spots are set, with Houston securing the top seed, followed by Seattle, us, and the Dallas Jackals in 4th position. While the result of this Week 18 game won’t impact the final playoff seedings, our rivalry with Seattle is the fiercest in the league, and every match against them is a highlight of the season.

Interestingly, this week’s matchups mirror the upcoming Western Conference Semi-Finals, with us facing Seattle (#2) and Houston (#1) playing Dallas (#4) in just three weeks’ time. This presents a unique opportunity for us to gauge our strengths and refine our strategies ahead of the playoffs.

We're eager to build on the momentum from our Week 17 win over Houston with another stellar performance against Seattle at home. A strong showing tonight will boost our confidence as we head into the playoff elimination rounds.

I’d like to take a moment to congratulate our players who have been selected to represent the USA National Rugby Team, the US Eagles, over the next two weeks: Greg Peterson, Nate Sylvia, Paddy Ryan, and Vili Helu. Additionally, Justice Sears-Duru’s strong performances since returning from a long injury layoff have earned him a spot on the Canadian National Rugby Team. Congratulations to these five players on their well-deserved selections.

Don’t forget about our upcoming All Blacks Coaching Clinics and the All Blacks and Flying Fijians Fundraising Cocktail Party in the week leading up to the world-ranking game on July 19th. Also, be sure to buy your tickets to the MLR Championship Final, where DJ Marshmello will entertain a packed Snapdragon Stadium.

Thank you for your unwavering support throughout the regular season!

We Are Legion!

CEO, San Diego Legion
