Who are the Friends of Fairfield Rugby?

We are players, past and present.
We are fans and supporters, always.
We are keepers of the tradition.
We are holders of the history.
We are the Friends of Fairfield Rugby 

The late Doug Ciacci '65, a Co-Founder of the Fairfield University Rugby Football Club and men's MVP Trophy Namesake, has been elected to the University Athletic Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony will be held on Monday, May 11th, during a golf outing/dinner event hosted by the Fairfield University Athletics Department at the Patterson Club in Fairfield, CT. Get more details including pricing & reservation information here; a portion of the event proceeds will go to support FURFC fitness programs. Let's scrum it up with a gathering of Ruggers that will make Doug smile from above and raise money for our club.
