Welcome to Chicago Riot Rugby, a social athletic club founded in 2007 by a group of former University of Illinois at Chicago Rugby players.  This club was formed to embrace the social aspects of the sport, along with offering a competitive atmosphere to contend on the rugby pitch.  Chicago Riot Rugby was formally accepted into CARFU to compete in DIII league starting in the Fall 2008 season. The Riot have quickly developed into one of the Midwest's top teams. Over the past several years the team has gotten closer and closer to the National Championship.

The Chicago Riot competes in both DIII and DIV of the Chicago Area Rugby Football Union.

There was no way I was going to end up in the scrum when I came to rugby - you know, waste my pretty looks.
