Rugby union in Liechtenstein is a minor but growing sport.

Governing body[edit]

Liechtenstein has no national governing body of its own, but comes under the Swiss Rugby Federation.

History[edit]

Liechtenstein was going to take part in one of the early European Club Cup competitions, but this never took off the ground, and Liechtenstein had to withdraw for lack of players. In 2013 the team played in the fira sevens gps in Latvia losing to Norway 34-0, Slovakia 26-10 and Estonia 29-15. [1]

There are two clubs, Lynx RC, which is based at Sportpark Eschen-Mauren, in Eschen, they used to play in the Swiss rugby union leagues, [2] and FC Vaduz Red Pride Rugby, based in Liechtenstein's capital, Vaduz.
