We are an international rugby team affiliated with Copenhagen Business School. Most of our players have never attended CBS and you do not need to either to join our team!
We are an international and diverse rugby club with both a men’s and a women’s team open for everyone. Despite our connection to Copenhagen Business School, we are not a university team but have players in various ages and occupations.
The female teams in Denmark play Rugby Sevens, the fast and versatile little brother of the original 15s and therefore so does our women’s team! The men’s team, however, plays 15s.
Both beginners and experienced players are welcome on our teams. The main objective is to play rugby in an international forum of Danish and foreign students and have fun at the same time, hence the level of experience does not matter. We therefore hope to see students who are yet to be acquainted with the game of rugby, and who are willing to take up the challenge and enjoy one of the most played sports in the world.
Socializing is a big part of the rugby team, both through practices, rugby matches, but especially since post (and sometimes pre) match pub crawling is an essential part of the culture.
You can find many videos on YouTube – both of how to play it and matches – and find the entire rules on irb.com, which is the homepage for the International Rugby Board, which governs the sport internationally.
In the UK, an old saying goes “Football is a gentleman’s game played by ruffians (violent individuals) and rugby is a ruffian’s game played by gentlemen“. In most rugby-playing countries, rugby union is widely regarded as an “establishment” sport, played mostly by members of the upper and middle classes.
Currently there is no mens team, but if you are interested please contact us by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org

There are many reasons you should start playing rugby and join our team. First of all, rugby is a sport for everyone where you can develop a lot. The training is fun and varied, you’ll get to spend time outside and you will for sure meet some great people.
Everyone! Most of our players had never played rugby before joining the team, so no experience is needed. If you have played before, you are of course also more then welcome to join! And remember that you do not have to be a student at CBS. You should, however, be 16 years old (women) or 18 years old (men), or very close to that when you join us.
