The Brazilian Rugby Confederation (Portuguese: Confederação Brasileira de Rugby, CBRu) is the governing body for rugby union in Brazil. It was founded in 1972 and became affiliated to the International Rugby Board in 1995.

The confederation has six affiliate state federations: Gaúcha (Rio Grande do Sul), Catarinense (Santa Catarina), Paranaense (Paraná), Paulista (São Paulo), Mineira (Minas Gerais), and Fluminense (Rio de Janeiro). Other state federations are unaffiliated with the CBRu.

It organizes the Campeonato Brasileiro de Rugby (Série A / Super 8), Taça Tupi (Série B) and Campeonato Brasileiro de Rugby Sevens.

From 2010 onwards, the Brazilian Rugby Union has been sponsored by Topper and Bradesco
