"American Football players are some of the best power athletes in the world," said Clive Woodward. "I'm fascinated to see, with the right training, if can they dominate another adjacent sport."
"This match will spark a million water cooler debates around the world," said Matt Sharp, CEO of Sharp Entertainment. "Can some of America's best football players beat a rugby team at their own game? We are going to answer that question."
Rugby is one of the biggest sports in the world, boasting 100 million fans globally and is the fastest-growing sport in North America. A former rugby union player, Woodward was coach of the England team from 1997 to 2004, which he led to victory in the 2003 Rugby World Cup. Having also worked as Team GB's Director of Sport for the London 2012 Games, Woodward will now return to the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro for the BBC, where Rugby will make its return to the Olympics after being absent for 90 years.
Sharp Entertainment, and its FOOTBALL V RUGBY, is represented by leading entertainment and sports agency Creative Artists Agency (CAA).
