Note that matches on Friday night will be at the Round Rock Multipurpose Fields at Old Settlers Park [MAP]. We will be streaming these matches but due to impending severe weather the broadcast team will be on the stadium balcony at the end of the in-goal area. We realize that this angle is not optimal but with the threat of lightening and severe weather we have made this decision for the safety of the broadcast team.

The weather predictions for Saturday and Sunday are more optimistic and we are confident that we’ll be able to stream. All matches on Field 1 at Burr Field will be live streamed with commentators. Matches on field 3 will be recorded & uploaded at a later date.

The TRU will make every effort to stream all Sunday matches, however due to travel, player welfare, etc. we may not be able to.  The TRU reserves the right to move match times and divisions in order to make streaming possible.
