Established in 1989, The Village Lions Rugby Football Club- NYC was founded by Alan Whelan, the owner of the Red Lion Pub in Greenwich Village New York. The team was originally made up of a colourful collection of players consisting of bartenders, bouncers, and patrons originating from all corners of the globe. Since its inception, the club has grown to become one of the strongest contenders on the East Coast rugby circuit fielding ‘A’ and ‘B’ teams in both Men’s and Women’s and competing in both 15s and 7s. The club also fields a competitive ‘Old Boys’ side. Home pitch located at Wards Meadow Loop, New York, NY.
