Rugby in Zurich

I used to play rugby back when I was stuednt and kinda miss it now that I'm working in Zurich.

I know rugby is not the most popular sport in Switzerland but anyone hear about a team in the Zurich area?

Rugby In Switzerland is more popular than one might think.

In Zug now with our hard work on our Rugby4Schools programme, it is the 3rd most popular sport after football and hockey.


In total there are 44 profesional mens teams in Switzerland spread across the 5 leagues:

National League A
National League B
National League C
1st League East
1st League west

There are four teams in the Zurich area:

The main team in Zurich are The Grasshoppers.

Then you have various other clubs such as Würenlos, Winterthur and Rugby Union Zurich.

I have played against all the teams mentioned above many times over the last few years (in league matches and tournements) and must say that they are all made up of decent guys.


If you have any questions about rugby in Switzerland, just ask me

cheers
SC

Re: Rugby in Zurich

If you are also interested in playing touch (touch rugby) there is a club in Zurich called the Geezers. The summer league is about to start (Mixed Mondays, Mens Thursdays). There are also friendly social games on a Friday lunch time and Sunday afternoon.
