The organization run and financed by William Tatham is expected to announce today or tomorrow an agreement with the Home Depot Center to bring an international rugby tournament to that venue.

The Hone Depot Center in Carson, Calif. was the venue for the USA 7s from 2004-2006.

Tatham’s Grand Prix Entertainment renewed its agreement with USA Rugby this month, an agreement that pays USA Rugby $50,000 a year in return for the rights to forma pro rugby competition of some undefined structure.

This agreement was first signed in 2005, and is now renewed through 2018, but has yet to yield any concrete competition.

Grand Prix is now looking to create a championship of sorts, by 2016, or perhaps sooner.
