For the 2019 Play Rugby Gala, we are celebrating the Power of Rugby and honoring our 2019 Athlete Giving Back Award Winner, Bryan Habana. Set on May 1st at Midtown Lofts & Terrace in NYC, this is a must-attend event for rugby fans (especially Springbok fans!) as well as those looking to mingle with the top players in business, sports, non-profit and entertainment.

We believe that rugby has the power to unite, inspire, and help young people reach their full potential. Sharing these transformative powers is what fuels and guides our work every day.

Few people embody this more than our 2019 Gala Honoree Bryan Habana. As a boy, Bryan witnessed one of the most iconic moments in sporting history as Nelson Mandela presented the Webb Ellis Cup to South Africa captain Francois Pienaar – helping unite South Africa and inspire a generation.


"Sitting in that stand as a 13-year-old youngster, to then start dreaming about taking up this beautiful game called rugby, it was a watershed moment in my life.”

- Bryan Habana

Have fun and help raise critical funds for Play Rugby USA as we celebrate Bryan for all that he’s done to promote the game and the values of rugby to young people across the globe.
