Welcome to the page of the Brussels Barbarians Rugby Football Club, Brussels's most renowned and Belgium's oldest expats rugby team.
Our history dates back to 1968 when a group of expatriate British Rugby players decided to form a club in order to continue playing the sport in the manner in which they were accustomed back home, especially the well-known post match social aspects.
We currently have one senior Men's team and one Ladies team. The 2012-13 season saw a resurgence of club spirit and the accompanying success on the field. We are confident that the boys (currently playing in the 1st Division Flemish Regional League) will soon be returning to the national leagues of Belgium and the ladies (playing in 2nd National Division) are becoming a force to be reckoned with.
We welcome players of all nationalities to join us, especially Belgians. We provide an excellent opportunity to learn English, although certain words heard on the field are unlikely to be found in any dictionary. Off the field we continue to contribute in no small measure to Belgium's position in the top five of the world's beer drinking nations.
If you are looking for a rugby challenge in an international environment and enjoy the typical banter that only this sport can offer; look no further!
Join us now; come along to training or go to our contact page if you'd like to know more. We meet at Montgomery Square every Tuesday and Thursday at 19.30 for car pooling.
You won't regret it – welcome to the BBRFC!
In June 2014 Brussels Barbarians and Brussels Celtic RFC merged to form BBRFC Celtic. The united club comprises 3 senior men's teams, a women's team, touch and youth / junior sections.
