Rugby union in Costa Rica is a minor, but growing sport.

Governing body[edit]

The governing body is the Federación de Rugby de Costa Rica which is not currently affiliated to the IRB.


In 2007, Costa Rica helped introduce the game into Guatemala, when the Jules Verne School in Guatemala and Liceo Francés from Costa Rica played one another.[1]

In December, 2007, Costa Rica A & B sides participated in the First Central American Rugby cup. The other competing teams were Panama and Guatemala. Costa Rica A came first in this tournament, Panama 2nd, Guatemala 3rd, and Costa Rica B 4th.
