About Us

about us

Founded in 1892, New Zealand Rugby has teams based in Wellington and Auckland as well as a number of people working out in the rugby community and with high performance teams. New Zealand Rugby has direct relationships with its members, including all 26 Provincial Unions, Investec Super Rugby teams, sponsors, and stakeholders such as the New Zealand Government.

We want to be a world-leading sports organisation, helping all of rugby to be the best it can be.

Each and every day we lead, support, grow and promote New Zealand's game.

We strive for rugby teams in black that are unrivalled, a high performance system that produces the world’s best talent, competitions that fans love, and a community game that is strong and cherished.

We are committed to New Zealand rugby being financially secure, attracting top partners and contributing actively to the global game.
