Ethnic Groups

The RFU’s vision for the game of rugby is that it is representative of the communities it serves.

It continually strives to develop and implement programmes that offer the opportunity for people of all ages from BME communities to participate in rugby.

Developing the game and encouraging participation in a diverse range of ethnic communities is a strategic goal for the RFU, and it works with players, coaches, partners and local authorities across the country to achieve this goal. It also works with third parties such as the British Asian Rugby Association.
