The championship match is set - the Seattle Seawolves will face Rugby New York for the chance to win the Major League Rugby (MLR) championship.

The match will be played at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey, home to Major League Soccer's New York Red Bulls and National Women's Soccer League's NJ/NY Gotham FC. The game will be televised on FOX and start at 12:00 PM EST on Saturday, June 25.

Seattle and New York are meeting for the first time in the playoffs in league history. Both have interesting paths on getting to the championship match.

New York is the match host, but a newcomer to the final. After dominant wins over Atlanta and New England, New York will have home field advantage to try and win their first league championship. The team has made the playoffs in every year they have been in the league.

On the other hand, Seattle is no stranger to the championship match. Seattle won the MLR title in 2018 and 2019. Both matches were on the road in front of hostile crowds. Seattle convincingly beat San Diego and Houston with high margins to make it to their third final in four seasons.

Who will win this year's title? Tune in on Saturday to find out.
