Rugby union in Mali is a minor but growing sport.

Governing body[edit]

The governing body for the sport is the Fédération Malienne de Rugby (Malienne Rugby Federation).[1]

History[edit]

Mali was formerly a French colony, and the game was first introduced there by French expatriates. In recent years, the game has been played mostly by native Malians.

Mali has a long-established union and players come from all walks of life. [2]
