About Us

The HKRU is the governing body for rugby union in Hong Kong. Founded in 1952 and since 1988 an affiliate of World Rugby (formerly the International Rugby Board), the union organizes the world-renowned Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens as well as its own domestic leagues across all age groups, genders and standards of play.

Our Vision

For Hong Kong Rugby to be a vibrant and multi-ethnic sports community, comprising people of all ages playing, coaching, refereeing, supporting and administering a dynamic, competitive and enjoyable game that emphasises fair play, teamwork, leadership, endeavour, family and social inclusion.

Our Mission

For Hong Kong Rugby to be recognized as a Union that combines successful operations with the achievement of the highest standards of player and team performance at all levels within a caring, competent and vibrant rugby community.

Founded in 1952, the Hong Kong Rugby Union (HKRU) is the governing body of Hong Kong Rugby and a non-profit organization where all revenue is channeled back into developing the game.

Domestically, Hong Kong Rugby has flourished with 57 men's teams playing in 7 Divisions and 24 women's teams in 3 Divisions. We offer competitive and social rugby to Tertiary and Junior (Colts, Schools and Mini) players in Hong Kong as well as bespoke coaching and referee courses for those who do not want to play rugby but wish to be involved.

On the national side, our senior men and senior women’s teams have shown great improvement, with the men’s team qualifying for the RWC 2019 Repechage, and the women’s team competing in the 2017 Women’s RWC in Ireland.

For the extended community, the HKRU is committed to bringing the excitement of rugby through HKRU organized events such as the Natixis Cup, Super Rugby, Asia Rugby Championship and the annual Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens.

To give back to the community, the Union engages in many social initiatives that aim to bring the value-added benefits of the game. Initiatives include: REAL (Rugby English Action Learning), HKRU Community Foundation, Don't Drop the Ball, Operation Breakthrough, amongst others.
