The last time the All Blacks took to the pitch in the United States, a record crowd of over 61,500 filled Soldier Field on November 1, 2014, in what was unquestionably the biggest single rugby event in the history of the United States. This will mark just the fourth time since the team’s inception that the World Champions will play in America and the latest since it became the first international rugby team to repeat as World Cup Champions in October 2015.

The Maori All Blacks are an elite rugby union team from New Zealand. A prerequisite for playing for this team is that each player has to have Maori whakapapa or genealogy. This will be the fourth time the USA Eagles will face the Maori All Blacks, the last time being in Philadelphia in September of 2013 before a sold out crowd of over 18,500 attendees.
