USA Wheelchair Rugby on August 24, 2016

With only 14 days until the Opening Ceremony of the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, both the NBC broadcast schedule and online streaming schedule have been released. Our full schedule of games can be found below and we’ll be updating the box scores daily. We are extremely excited about the increased coverage of the 2016 Paralympic Games and are hopeful that wheelchair rugby will get some great coverage. In addition to the broadcast news we are very happy to see that former USAWR staff member, Gary Pate, has been listed as a commentator for NBC during the wheelchair rugby matches. Stay tuned to our website and follow our journey to Rio via social media. Thank you to all of our fans, families, and supporters over the past four years. GO USA!
