The Ivy Rugby Conference is an annual rugby union competition played among the eight member schools of the Ivy League. The Ivy Rugby Conference was formed in 2009. The Ivy Rugby Conference was formed to foster better competition among rugby teams from the Ivy League schools and to raise the quality of play.[1] Ivy Rugby formed committees to manage the league, independently of the LAUs and TUs.[2] The Ivy Rugby Conference, and specifically its sevens tournament, has enabled the Ivy schools to tap into existing rivalries and fan bases.[3]

Ivy Rugby has had consistent success in attracting commercial sponsors.[4] Sponsors have included H2H, Royall Lyme and Boathouse Sports.[5][6]

The Ivy League schools have a rich rugby tradition that pre-dates the formation of the Ivy conference. The eight Ivy League schools competed in the Ivy Rugby Championship Tournament from 1969 until the Ivy Rugby Conference was formed in 2009.[7] The Ivy Rugby logo was developed in 2005.[8]

In addition to the traditional 15-a-side rugby union competition, the teams play yearly for the Ivy Rugby 7s Championship held the first Saturday in November.
