About Us

Rugby Victoria is the governing body for Rugby within the state of Victoria and is an incorporated association and an affiliate of Rugby Australia.

Representing the interests of 20,000 participants, Rugby Victoria provides services and support to our registered clubs, members and affiliate organisations in Victoria.

Rugby Victoria generates its revenue through sponsorships, government grants and fundraising. Income and funding are re-invested back into Victorian rugby for special projects, education, elite pathways and high performance with direct benefits to members enhancing participation opportunities for all. At a Victorian grass-roots level, Rugby is largely delivered by active volunteers who give their time to assist the day-to-day running of clubs.

Rugby in Victoria is currently witnessing an exciting and unprecedented growth period, recording over a 15% increase in participants from 2017 to 2018. With a growing member base, 27 affiliated Clubs and three affiliated Associations, Rugby Victoria’s future looks vibrant, built on a strong and proud heritage since 1888.
