Lahore Rugby Football Club
The Lahore Rugby Football Club ‘LRFC’ came into existence in the summer of 1991 and got registered in 1992. At that time a large contingent of Expatriates were present in Lahore working for Multinational companies, foreign mission and aid agencies. These Rugby enthusiasts with the help of some Pakistani’s who also had prior exposure of the sport.
A similar situation also existed in Islamabad and Karachi. Therefore from the outset all these 3 clubs started a regular exchange of Rugby matches and an annual Pakistan Rugby Sevens event also evolved from their regular exchange of fixtures.
The presence of skilled expatriates players in the team lent support in reconstitute and training of more local players and as the expatriate population in Lahore waned due to the political-cum-economic scenario of the country. LRFC was able to maintain a steady stream of local players.
By 1995/6 LRFC could boost of a full contingent of local Rugby players and has maintained this status since then.
The reduction in the expatriate members in the game although did impact the club in gaining access to much needed sponsorship which was more forthcoming during their presence. Lahore despite this handicap maintained an active calendar each season due to hard work and dedication of its members. The club started to expand its horizons by participating in regional tournaments in the Gulf and South Asia. LRFC became a regular participant at the prestigious Dubai 7's Rugby Tournament (Since 1997 - today) event besides participating twice in Sharjah 10's (1999 & 2001).
Since 1995, LRFC was also a regular participant at the All India & South Asia Rugby 15's Tournament in India, but currently it's participation is restricte due to unpleasent political situation between Pakistan and India. The club has also traveled to India (other than All India Tournament) and Sri Lanka.
LRFC had introduced an annual Rugby 10’S Tournament 8 times of its own (Since 1999 - till 2006). The club hosted teams from Sri Lanka and India in this tournament on regular bases. The club committee is in planning to introduce a International invitational Rugby 7's tournament on annual bases from 2019.
