About the SF Fog Rugby Football Club
The San Francisco Fog R.F.C. is a rugby club that formed in June of 2000 and is committed to an ethic of inclusion. The vision of the club is to be the preeminent rugby club in the world that actively pursues the participation of people of color, gay men, women, and other groups traditionally under-represented in rugby.

Over 100 members strong, Fog Rugby welcomes newcomers, as well as experienced players, coaches and supporters, of all ages, races, and sexual orientation.

About The Bingham Cup
The Bingham Cup is the world championship of gay and inclusive rugby teams and is one of the largest men’s 15-aside rugby union tournaments in the sporting calendar outside of the IRB Rugby World Cup.



It is named in honor of one of our brothers, Mark Bingham, and is officially sponsored by the Rugby Football Union. Mark was tragically taken from us on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001, during the terrorist attack on our nation. He was one of the 38 passengers on hijacked United Airlines flight 93 that crashed outside of Pittsburgh. Mark was 31 years old. He epitomized what it means to be a Fog rugger, and we all learned a great deal from him. Aside from being a superb player, “Bear Trap” was a true gentleman and a generous friend. He is sorely missed. 

 
We Need Your Help!
The seventh Bingham Cup will be held in Sydney, Australia, August 24-31, 2014. The SF Fog seeks to bring the coveted Bingham Cup trophy back to San Francisco!
 
You donations count - big or small. Please spread the word with your friends and family on Facebook, Twitter and help us raise the funds we need to send a full side of players to Sydney!

Thank you, and as we like to say during the heat of battle on the pitch, Roll Fog Roll!
