As Major League Rugby enters Season Five, we celebrate a global movement that is gaining momentum.

A game with heart and soul that echoes the best aspects of life. A game with the communal spirit that success is not measured in wins or losses, but in the growth of the game.

Rugby isn’t for anyone, it’s for everyone. An experience that captivates and forms connections well beyond the final whistle. Join us, in the Rise of Rugby.


“As we approach our half-decade mark with MLR, I have seen firsthand that there is a global rugby movement within the United States and Canada,” says Commissioner George Killebrew. “Thanks to the groundswell of support for the ‘Rise of Rugby,’ our league is truly gaining momentum on the national stage. I cannot wait to introduce Major League Rugby to more fans and see continued growth in attendance numbers, broadcast ratings and global recognition during our fifth season. There’s a place for everyone in our sport.”
