This past Saturday, May the 6th at Toronto’s own Lamport Stadium, the Toronto Wolfpack emerged victorious in their first home opener in club history. Despite the day’s cloudy, cool, and slightly rainy weather, a crowd of over 6,000 fans flocked to Lamport Stadium to see the Wolfpack take on Oxford RLFC. Kids, adults, families, and rugby fanatics alike were treated to an intense and exciting matchup, which saw the Wolfpack once again dominate their opponent, posting 62 points to Oxford’s 12.
In addition to the stellar on-field play, fans were also provided half-time entertainment from the Wolfpack’s official dance team – the She Wolves, as well as mini game featuring the Mississauga Blues RFC. Combined with a beer garden featuring exclusively local brews, and the team’s official shop across the street, there was something to appeal to even the most casual of fans at Saturday’s match.
Cosmos Sports is excited to have been an integral part of this piece of rugby history, having worked with the Wolfpack for several months in a number of different areas including sponsorship procurement and ticket sales. Cosmos has been largely instrumental in bringing on sponsors including Air Transat, Brown-Forman, Bold Works, Gilbert Rugby, CAT Global, 3 Brewers, and the sponsor of the home opener – TekSavvy. As the season progresses, the Cosmos team will continue to drive ticket sales revenue, while also servicing a number of corporate sponsors, ensuring that the team’s inaugural season is wholly successful for both fans in the stands and the team’s sponsors.
The team’s next home match will be taking place on Saturday May the 20th at 4:30pm. The Wolfpack will face their most evenly matched opponent yet when they play host to the Barrow Raiders RLFC.
