The Alamo City Rugby Football Club was founded in the spring of 1983 by a small group of players interested in promoting the sport of rugby for athletic enjoyment and to serve as a fundraiser for local charities. Since then the club has grown to include high school, college, old boy and men's senior teams The ACRFC has affiliated with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the San Antonio Food Bank and other charitable organizations. In 1984 the ACRFC joined the Fiesta San Antonio Commission and began hosting a rugby event each spring during Fiesta. In past years participating teams have included British Caledonia, Twickingham of England, Arklow Ireland and the Old Hirelings from France. Many years the U.S. military academies have attended and competed for the “Commandant's 15s Cup.” This year the tournament is to feature an “Old Boys” division with players ranging from 35 to 62 years old. A college division will be included featuring both the University of Texas at San Antonio and St. Mary's University. A division for high school teams will also be incorporated, with players under 19 participating. Free event. For more information call (210) 521-7158 or (210) 885-4687.
