Midwest Champions 2017

Established in 1964, Chicago Lions Rugby is the premier rugby club in the Midwest and has been a consistent powerhouse in the United States rugby scene for over 50 years.

The Chicago Lions are the only team in the Midwest to field fully competitive sides for Division 1, and Men’s Club 7s and a Women’s 7s competition as well as a Development side. The Lions have had several teams within our organization, including an over-35 Grey Lions squad to keep our extensive network of players old and new active and involved.

We have an elite, experienced coaching staff and are fortunate to also have a full-service training staff partnership with AthletiCo at their disposal for training sessions and matches both home and away.

Chicago Lions Rugby call Chicago Hope Academy Field home, located at 732 South Washtenaw in Chicago. This location is a direct result of a long term partnership with Chicago Hope Academy. This partnership with a private, coed college prep school for urban youth creates unique sponsorship opportunities for the club and its supporters.

The Lions are also spearheading the development and coaching efforts of the Chicago Hope Academy youth rugby club.
