The Springfield Celts Rugby Club was established in 1975. Over the years the Celts have created a tradition of hard hitting rugby often taking the best of teams out of their game plan. This tradition has produced several tournament trophies and union victories. The legend of the "Green Jersey" has haunted the Midwestern region for many years. The young players hear of the stories of destruction and victory and continue to wear the Green Jersey with pride.
The Springfield Celts Rugby Club's sponsors are Liquid Rugby in Petersburg, Illinois, The Springfield Shopper in Springfield, Illinois, and Robert Chic Fritz Inc. in Springfield, Illinois. All socials after home matches will be at Weebles Bar & Grill in Springfield, Illinois.
