The Pittsburgh Rugby Football Club was established in 1964. Since that time, the club has identified itself as an organization of diverse and colorful people with one common passion: to play the best rugby possible. In the long history of the club, people from all occupations have played for the team including doctors, lawyers, mechanics, students, police officers, engineers, etc. The team has grown to represent the city from which it has sprung. Whether it be its diverse makeup of members, its hardworking and gritty reputation, or even the colors it wears (Black and Gold), the PRFC is the city’s team. We play in the city. We practice in the city. Hence our nickname as we have come to be known around town as Pitt City.
As we head to the future, things are looking bright, as our direction both on and off the field is positive. Young, quick, and hard, the new-look PRFC plays an up-tempo, quick rucking game. We are proving ourselves on the field. Off the field, a newly installed executive committee is launching plans for a rugby-only facility, hopefully in the city limits.
