The Springfield Celts Rugby Club was established in 1975. Over the years the Celts have created a tradition of hard hitting rugby often taking the best of teams out of their game plan. This tradition has produced several tournament trophies and union victories. The legend of the "Green Jersey" has haunted the Midwestern region for many years. The young players hear of the stories of destruction and victory and continue to wear the green jersey with pride.
The Spring season is upon us. No, 2020 wasn't a horrible dream with no Celts rugby but it is finally behind us. The state of Illinois has finally given rugby the GREEN light. So we are excited to hit the pitch and bring rugby back to Central Illinois. Our schedule is up and boy it is a good one. I do want to point out that we are going to continue to follow all CDC guidelines at our games so please be aware of those as they change through the season. And now with that public service announcement out of the way, let so go play some rugby and LET'S GO GREEN!!!
