The Edmonton Rugby Football Club is the oldest club in the Edmonton Rugby Union
having been established in 1953. Based in North Edmonton, the Pirates field teams for Men, Women and Junior players of all ages and abilities.
We have a large modern clubhouse and three full size pitches which we use to run our wide range of rugby programs. We welcome both experienced and new players.
Besides rugby programs, the Pirates also offer a warm friendly atmosphere and a vibrant social line up throughout the year.
If you are a long-time rugby player or you are just starting to play, come out to a practice and see what the Pirates can offer you!

We have a bunch of the women going this year already, so it would be awesome to see a bunch of the guys come out too.

Congratulations to the Div 3 Men on their successful season. After winning the ERU championship at the end of September, they put the boots on one last time in Calgary to challenge for the provincial title. Sadly, it was a loss, albeit a close one, with only 2 points separating them from the winning Calgary Canucks. Thank you for all your hard work this season! We look forward to another exceptional season of rugby in 2015!
