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.
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.
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 61 men's teams playing in 8 Divisions and 25 women's teams in three 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 team have shown great improvement, winning the Hong Kong Sevens Shield in 2010, placing 2nd in the 2016 Asia Rugby Championship and ranking #2 in the World. Many of our younger players have had the opportunity to represent Hong Kong at various age grades.
For the extended community, the HKRU is committed to bringing the excitement of rugby through HKRU organized events such as the Asia Rugby Championship and the annual Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens. The Union is committed to continuously improving the events and bringing an elevated experience.
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.
In response to the rising demand, the Union invests in providing quality pitches to the community with our newest project at Tin Shui Wai.

Regardless of age, background and playing ability, we hope you will participate in some way and support us in our cause of making "Hong Kong Rugby - A Game for All"
