Malaysian Rugby, formerly known as Malaysian Rugby Union (Malay: Kesatuan Ragbi Malaysia) is the governing body for rugby union in Malaysia. It was founded in 1921 and joined the International Rugby Football Board, later known as the International Rugby Board and now as World Rugby, in 1988. They organize the annual Malaysia Sevens tournament.


The Malaya Rugby Union (as it was then) was founded in 1921 and joined the IRFB in 1988.[1][2][3] The founder members were Selangor, Ipoh District, Singapore, Malacca and Negeri Sembilan.[3]

It is a founding member of the Asian Rugby Football Union.[4]

In 2016, following the re-branding of World Rugby and Asia Rugby, the Malaysia Rugby Union was renamed as Malaysia Rugby.
