Rugby union in Mongolia is a minor but growing sport. Mongolia is represented in international matches by the Mongolia national rugby union team, which compete in the annual Asian Five Nations tournament.

Governing body[edit]

The governing body is the Mongolian Rugby Football Union (MRFU), which was established in 2003.[1]


Rugby was first introduced into Mongolia from the Soviet Union's Red Army, where it was a moderately popular sport.

The first ever official match of Mongolia was played at 9 June 2009, for the Asian Five Nations, Division II, in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, with Kyrgyzstan, finishing with a respectable 21-38 loss. Mongolia takes part in the regional sections of the Asian Five Nations[2][3]

There are currently 8 clubs in existence.[4]
