Media Men

Media Rugby Men’s Football Club played its first game in the spring of 1978. Three high school friends who were returning to the Media, PA area from college and had played collegiate rugby started the club. In the mid 1980’s Media assimilated Marple Rugby football club into its fold and continued to grow. In the 1990’s and early 2000’s Media grew into a regional powerhouse. Media Rugby grew from its humble beginnings into the premier Division 1 club in the EPRU, moving from division 3 up to the top echelon of Division 1’s men rugby and was nationally ranked in USA Power Rugby as one of the top 10 teams in the nation. In 2008 the club was inducted in the Media Area Sports Hall of Fame. In Fall of 2016, Media dropped out of Division 2 league play due to lack of numbers. The team will return to league play in 2017.
