University of Wisconsin Men’s Rugby


Email: to be added

The Wisconsin Rugby Football Club was founded in 1962 by collegiate students, alumni, and Madison residents both with and without rugby experience. This club proved to be one of the most successful teams in the midwest during the sixties and early seventies.

In 1977 the University side split from WRC and the present day University of Wisconsin RFC came into being- a team comprised entirely of UW undergrads.

On the club’s 20th anniversary, the team took a giant step forward in the journey to reestablish the UWRFC among the collegiate elite. In 2012, the Badgers won the inaugural BigTen 15’s Championship, and in 2013 were runners up for the BigTen title. Additionally, the Badgers won the Big 10 15’s tournament in 2014. Wisconsin also competed in the National Collegiate 15’s tournament in 2010, 2011, and 2012. UW has remained a dominant force in the conference.

UW is also proud of their dominant 7’s team, garnering back-to-back Big Ten championships in 2012 & 2013. Along with victories in multiple CRC’s, the Badger 7’s squad has represented the Big Ten two years in a row at the USA Rugby national 7’s tourneys at Texas A&M and in the Collegiate Rugby Championships in Philadelphia.
