Cambridge University Rugby League Football Club was founded in 1980, commemorating our 40th anniversary in the 2020/21 season.

As one of the University’s premier sports clubs, we aim to be one of the fastest-growing sports on offer to Cambridge students. We compete every Wednesday in our regional BUCS division and both the 1st and 2nd teams play our Oxford counterparts in the annual Varsity Match at the end of Lent Term. Our ultimate aim is to dominate the BUCS league and Varsity Match in the foreseeable future — through excellent player recruitment, training and coaching. The club currently boasts national representatives from the England Lions and are hoping to develop current and future players into England Universities players. 

However, our objectives cannot be realised without financial support. The club has become increasingly reliant upon annual subscriptions from playing members to cover the cost of pitch hire, playing kit, coaching and transportation. This expense undoubtedly restricts access to those with the potential to reach the very top of our sport. Additional alumni support would help the club meet ongoing expenses and contribute to the ambitious but sustainable growth of CURLFC.

Please note that the club is able to claim Gift Aid on donations from UK taxpayers giving via the University’s fundraising campaign, at no additional cost to the donor.
