Rugby union in Liechtenstein is a minor but growing sport.

Governing body[edit]

Liechtenstein has no national governing body of its own, but comes under the Swiss Rugby Federation.

History[edit]

Liechtenstein was going to take part in one of the early European Club Cup competitions, but this never took off and Liechtenstein had to withdraw for lack of players; in 2013 the team played in the fira sevens gps in Latvia losing to Norway 34-0, Slovakia 26-10 and Estonia 29-15. [1]

There are two clubs, Lynx RC, which is based at Sportpark Eschen-Mauren, in Eschen, they used to play in the Swiss rugby union leagues,[2] and FC Vaduz Red Pride Rugby, based in Liechtenstein's capital, Vaduz.
