Welcome to the official site of the Charlotte Rugby Club! 




The Rugby Athletic Center (RAC) and the Charlotte Rugby Football Club (CRFC) will co-host the Eastern Regionals in Charlotte, NC. Day-one matches will be split between the two venues on the Saturday portion of the competition, while all Sunday matches will take place exclusively at the RAC.
Facing off will be representatives from each of five divisions in the Midwest and Atlantic North. The South and Mid-Atlantic will send representatives in Men's DII & DIII, as well as Women's DII.
This is the first national level USA Rugby event held in Charlotte. The city has hosted regional championships in the past... most recently the 2014 Southern Conference Club Playoffs.
