WELCOME TO THE CHICAGO LIONS RUGBY FOOTBALL CLUB (est 1964)
The Chicago Lions Rugby Football Club is the Premier Rugby Club in the Midwest and has been a consistent powerhouse in the United States rugby scene since the club’s inception in 1964. The Chicago Lions RFC is the only team in the Midwest to field fully competitive sides for Rugby Super League(defunct), Division I, Men’s Club Sevens and a Women’s Seven’s competition. The Lions have had several teams within our organization, including an over-35 Grey Lions squad to keep our extensive network of players – old and new – active and involved.
The Chicago Lions have an elite, experienced coaching staff, led by Head Coach Phillp Thabu Eloff (Former USA Eagles) and Marty Wiggins (former USA Eagles Assistant Coach) . The Lions are fortunate to also have a full-service training staff partnership with AthletiCo at their disposal for training sessions and matches, both home and away.
