Rugby Today reports that one of the five teams that competed in the inaugural Pro Rugby league in the U.S. has folded.

The San Francisco Rush are no more. PRO Rugby CEO and owner Doug Schoninger sent out an email Thursday informing players and coaches the team would not continue, citing venue issues.

“With no suitable venue available, we are forced to make the hard choice of terminating operations for the SF Rush and terminating all employees, effective immediately,” Schoninger’s email read. “I am particularly saddened as I feel, with more work and more local cooperation, we could have made the team successful in the short term.”

The Rush finished fourth amongst the original five teams in 2016.
