Wharton Wharthogs

For over 30 years, the Wharton Rugby Football Club has represented the University of Pennsylvania on the pitch in heated competition against American rivals such as the Harvard Business School, Stanford University GSB, and the Kellogg School at Northwestern, as well as international competition such as the Australian Graduate School of Management (AGSM), the Smurfit School of Business at University College-Dublin, and the London Business School. The Wharthogs, or "Hogs" as we are known, have traditionally been among the strongest teams at their level in the United States and have experienced success in both national and international tournaments such as the MBA World Cup, held every spring at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.

Each fall, we host Hogfest, our own rugby tournament in Philadelphia. In addition to our domestic matches and tournaments, the Hogs travel abroad for international rugby tours in South Africa or Argentina each spring. We are an extremely active club at Wharton and we thank our generous corporate sponsors for assisting us in funding many of our key club activities each year.

Gentlemen on and off the field, Hog alumni are well represented among the management ranks of many of the most prestigious firms and organizations in the world. We forge a deep bond on the rugby field that remains strong long after graduation as we matriculate through life
