2019 NYC rugby cup

We are hosting the 2019 NYC Rugby Cup on Saturday, June 8th. More than 50 teams of kids from across NYC will descend on Randall's Island to compete in over 100 games of flag rugby throughout the day!

This is a fun-packed day, showcasing both rugby skill and Play Rugby values. Volunteer and sponsorship opportunities are available, so we hope you will join us!!

More details below!


This is a big event! We need dedicated volunteers who are willing to offer both their time and talents. If you're interested in volunteering, please fill out the 2019 NYC Rugby Cup Volunteer Registration Form.

We need help for all kinds of roles: Registration Volunteers, Time Keepers, Scorekeepers, Referees and Photographers. Most roles require a 4-8 hour time commitment and some may involve a moderate level of physical activity.


The NYC Rugby Cup is an incredible and highly visble opportunity to give back to the community and demonstrate your commitment to service. If your organization is interested in sponsorship opportunities, please email our Development Manager, Leo Purtill: [email protected].
