The Harvard Rugby Football Club is a collegiate rugby team at Harvard College. Founded in 1872, the HRFC is the oldest Rugby Club in the United States.[1] With around 60 members, Harvard Rugby is one of the largest club teams at Harvard. In past years, the club traveled to Berkeley, California for the National Tournament (Top 16) after having taken the Ivy League title.


Men's Team

Harvard competes in the Ivy League.[2] The first Ivy League Rugby Championship was played in 1969.[3] Harvard has won the Ivy League Championships in 2007, 2003 and 1994 and were National Champions in 1984, as well as National Championship runner-up to Cal-Berkeley in 1981 and to Air Force in 2003. In 2009, the men joined a newly established Ivy Rugby Conference that kicked off as a separate conference in the Northeast Rugby Union.[4]
