Celebrating 150 years of rugby in Yorkshire

This year rugby in Yorkshire celebrates its 150th Anniversary and we can’t wait to celebrate with you.

We know there’s plenty to marvel at, from acknowledging the people who have forged the way, to those moments which have put Yorkshire at the forefront of the game throughout the last century, but most importantly this is our time to CELEBRATE.  A time to celebrate the diversity and inclusion of our game, to celebrate the army of volunteers who are the very heartbeat of our clubs and best of all to celebrate what’s to come.

Our year of rugby starts in July 2019 and everyone is invited to celebrate the game in Yorkshire any time anywhere.  Whether that’s joining us at one of our 150 days of rugby events, hosting your own day of rugby, or just throwing an oval shape ball around with friends.  Whatever you’re doing make sure you share it with us using the #Celebrate150.

Our Yorkshire Rugby family are passionate about the game and championing the RFU’s mission of
“Teamwork, Respect, Discipline, Enjoyment and Sportsmanship” Our mission is:
“To grow rugby across the region and inspire the next generation.”
