AboutThe Philadelphia University RFC is a university club sport that competes with teams throughout the northeast region. PURFC provides all of the members of the university with the opportunity to be introduced, taught, coach, referee, and play rugby at the collegiate level. We do this while spreading the unique brotherhood of rugby union football. We also spread the game of rugby in all its aspects to our community, through service and other hands-on activities off of the pitch. Rugby is a well known organization on our campus and provides a great opportunity for students to meet new people, while having an exciting and productive time doing it. The Philadelphia University Rugby team is a member of the EPRU Small College Rugby Conference and competes annually with Albright, Bucknell, F&M, PSU Berks, Susquehanna, Widener, Swarthmore, Ursinus, and Washington College. We participate in Divison III of USA Rugby college rugby. We practice on our stunningly unique campus and play our games on the great PCOM pitch.
Founded in 2011, Philadelphia University RFC hopes to turn its blossoming program into one with a long and rich tradition of excellence. Beginning in 2010 with a handful of Philadelphia University students playing with Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, PURFC as of fall 2012 is a DIII rugby team.
