Toronto Arrows Announce 2023 Regular Season Schedule
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TORONTO, ON – The Toronto Arrows’ complete 2023 Major League Rugby regular season schedule has been released today by MLR ahead of the upcoming season.
The Arrows will open the fifth season in club history with an away game against Rugby ATL on Friday, February 17. The Week 1 clash will also serve as the 2023 edition of the Fire and Ice Cup; serving as a commemoration of sportsmanship and unity through rugby, the Cup salutes the Arrows’ full season spent living away from home throughout the 2021 campaign during the height of the pandemic, as well as Rugby ATL’s camaraderie in opening their doors to host their nomadic Canadian brothers.
Rugby ATL successfully retained the Fire and Ice Cup with a 34-23 victory at Atlanta Silverbacks Park last season. The opening-week fixture represents the lone regular-season opportunity for Toronto to vie for the hardware, as the Cup can only be claimed if won in the home stadium of the previous year’s winner.
The following week, the club will take on reigning MLR champions Rugby New York in an away tilt in the Big Apple.
Week 4 will see the Arrows get their first crack at expansion side Chicago, with the 28,000-seat SeatGeek Stadium serving as the home base for the league’s newest franchise.
Toronto will host Rugby New York at York Lions Stadium for the club’s home opener on Saturday, April 8, and will round out an exciting three-match homestand by welcoming Eastern Conference finalists New England Free Jacks in Week 9 and MLR Championship finalists Seattle Seawolves in Week 10.
During the entirety of the 2023 season, the club will compete in 16 regular season matches over 18 weeks between February 17 and June 17, with nine games scheduled on Saturdays, four on Sundays, two on Fridays, and one on the Thursday preceding the Victoria Day long weekend.
The team’s bye weeks fall in Week 3 and Week 12.
