The Cincinnati Rugby Football Club (CRFC), known commonly as the Wolfhounds, is the Premier Rugby Club in Ohio. Founded in 1974, and sanctioned by USA Rugby, the Club fields competitive teams in Men’s Division 1 Midwest Premiership, Women’s Club Sevens, and Men’s Club Sevens. A very active over-35 Greyhound group ensures the history and culture of our Club are embodied by each team. Since inception, the Wolfhounds remain one of only two teams in the Midwest Rugby Union to compete in Division I for their entire history.
Our mission is to operate for charitable and educational purposes to foster national and international amateur competition in the sport of rugby.
What We Do
The foundation provides world class fields, equipment, training, clinics, and scholarships to grow amateur rugby throughout the region.
Nurture the growth of amateur rugby throughout the region via financial backing, leadership, and education.
As a 501c3 non-profit foundation, the MWRDF relies on investment from individuals, groups, and corporations to help accomplish our mission. Investments can be made by volunteering time at events, taking a leadership role, or via a financial contribution. No matter how you choose to invest, your time, money, and effort will go to a great cause benefiting amateur rugby throughout Greater Cincinnati.
To build a significant structure, you must first have a strong foundation to build upon. This is the approach that the MWRDF takes to the growth of rugby throughout the region. The MWRDF builds this foundation by providing world class rugby fields for practice and games, scholarships for ruggers traveling nationally and internationally, coaching clinics, and by providing balls, jerseys, and equipment to clubs throughout the region.
Coaching clinics, 7s & 15s tournaments, and social gatherings are just some of the many different events sponsored by the MWRDF throughout the rugby calendar each year. The multitude of events are a great way to create community, teach rugby, and build stronger rugby clubs, together!
As a 501c3 non-profit organization, the MWRDF raises funds through several different methods including individual donations, corporate sponsorships, community efforts with Kroger Rewards & Amazon Smile, raffles for well known high-end prizes, and events such as the annual euchre tournament.
