WE NEED YOU to help build a bridge, to help make these programs accessible and sustainable as we look ahead to hosting the Rugby World Cup in 2031 and 2033. Imagine seeing the young players of today emerge from the tunnel in a Rugby World Cup playoff knowing you had a part in their journey. To send these future Eagles down the Rugby World Cup pathway, our goal is to raise $200,000 this year. Thanks to the generosity of a small number of individuals, we are on our way to that goal but still have a ways to go. Give today and you can be proud of your impact on the lives of a special group of young players and support the future of American rugby.


Supporting youth sports and rugby development is a popular partnership for companies and brands. The USA Rugby Junior National Teams feature a selection of sponsorship opportunities from digital recognition to team interaction. All sponsor support goes directly to the pathway programs to build a sustainable environment for years to come.
