On Friday, November 30, 2018, Harrisburg Rugby Football Club, in conjunction with Londonderry Township in Dauphin County, PA, has broken ground to begin construction of Perseverance Field, the future home of the Harrisburg Rugby Football Club.
We want to send to you a brief update on our field status, as this a momentous occasion for the rugby community within the Eastern Pennsylvania Rugby Union. These types of facilities will help to secure field space for various events and opportunities that are going to help grow the game of rugby at various levels of the game – high school, collegiate, club, 7s. There will be three fields, one international size, that will be unlike any other field set up within our region. The fields should be ready for the 2020 competition cycle, but we will issue further releases to keep you updated on field availability.
The Harrisburg Rugby Football Club was founded in 1969 and is approaching its 50 year anniversary. The men and women of Harrisburg Rugby Football Club invest in the Central Pennsylvania region by providing support for community development through recreational activities; to encourage and promote the ethos of camaraderie, discipline, and respect to other underserved entities. Growth and development of the rugby community is our goal.
If you wish to contribute to the further development of the field complex, you may make a donation through this GoFundMe website!
