Welcome to the BVI Rugby Football Union
A very warm welcome to the BVI Rugby Football Union, the home of rugby in the Virgin Islands.
Our Union has humble beginnings. In the 1960s a rugby club was established on the back of impromptu matches between a handful of expatriates living on the islands and visiting Royal Airforce engineers. Our ties with the United Kingdom's armed forces continue to this day, with regular matches being held between the BVI and visiting Royal Navy ships. Today we have grown to become one of the leading rugby clubs in the Caribbean, with a full membership and rugby programme, from junior tag rugby to men's and women's seniors teams, and our Strollers. While distinctly Caribbean and firmly rooted in the BVI, we are truly one of the most international of all rugby unions, with members from more than a dozen countries.
While we have a strong tradition of touring the Caribbean, we are always looking to host visiting rugby teams. For those of you planning a rugby tour to the Caribbean, please do consider our beautiful islands as your base for an unforgettable tour. For those of you in the BVI, we look forward to seeing you on the training ground, or in the club for a few beers.
