Macclesfield RUFC is a rugby union team based in the Cheshire town of Macclesfield and operates five senior sides, two youth and ten mini/junior teams. The first XV, known as the Blues, will play in the fourth tier of the English rugby union system, National League 2 North, after being relegated from National League 1 in season 2014–15. The second XV, known as the Lions, plays in the Bateman BMW Premier League with the third, fourth and fifth XV playing in the University of Salford League 1st, 4th and 5th divisions respectively.
Macclesfield RUFC was formed in 1877 although the present club was formed in 1927. After playing at several venues, the club moved to its present home in 1980. Five years later they participated in the forerunner to the launch of the national league system when they participated in the Girobank North West League. Over the last 25 years Macclesfield have climbed the pyramid spending one season in National One during the 2012–13 Season before being relegated but bouncing straight back after winning promotion during 2013–14 Season. However the 2014/15 Season saw the Blues relegated back to National 2 at the end of the campaign. They won the old North West 1 in 1991–92, North 2 in 1994–95 and entered the old National 3 North, then the fourth tier of club rugby, in 2002, winning the league in 2009–10, by which it had been restructured as National League 2 North.
