Virginia Rugby

Formed in 1961, the Virginia Rugby Football Club (VRFC) has the unique distinction of being the oldest rugby club south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

Located in Charlottesville, Virginia (the home of Thomas Jefferson and the University of Virginia) the VRFC is composed of athletes from UVA graduate schools in addition to rugby enthusiasts from the surrounding area.

Being associated with the University, our membership over the years has been very diverse. We have had players from England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.
