In the Fan Zone, attendees will get to mingle with Rudi the Raptor, the team’s mascot, and will experience a variety of rugby - and raptor - themed activities. Start the pregame with a wild trip on the chaos obstacle course! Then head over to the rugby toss station and do your best to get the ball through the targets. Feel free to stop and chat with one of our Rugby 101 experts, who will be walking the Fan Zone to answer any questions you might have about the sport. For the younger (or the young at heart) Raptors fans, the Fan Zone will also feature two face-painting stations. Glendale will also host special guests from HawkQuest, a Colorado nonprofit that seeks to educate the public about the importance of birds of prey. Fans will have the chance to experience real eagles, hawks, falcons, and owls at close range!

The Fan Zone isn’t just activities, however. Fans will have access to Raptors merchandise through O’Brien Rugby, with a special booth set up featuring the Item of the Week. The Fan Zone will feature favorite local food trucks as well – with Lazo Foods, Crescent City Food Truck, Stella Blue Food Truck and California Wrap Runner Food Truck serving up delicious food. The Raptors Fan Zone won’t neglect Colorado’s juggernaut craft beer scene either, with each pregame experience featuring a local brewery of the match.
