Barbarians Name Squad For Historic Match In Glendale

Baa Baas Invent A Chant And Are Perfect

The Barbarians FC women's team has named its squad to take on the USA Friday night at Infinity Park in Glendale, CO.

This will be the first-ever game for the Barbarians women's team against an international opponent, and the first-ever game for any Barbarians team against the USA.

The game kicks off at 5PM MT, 7PMET, 12AMGMT/UTC and will be shown LIVE on FloRugby Worldwide.

The Barbarians squad totals 697 international caps, and will feature two Americans in the matchday roster.
