ILLIANA MISFITS RUGBY FOOTBALL CLUB PROVIDING NORTHWEST INDIANA AND SOUTH CHICAGO WITH THE GREAT SPORT OF RUGBY SINCE 2003
The goal of the Illiana Misfits Rugby Club is to grow the sport of rugby in Northwest Indiana (NWI) and the South Suburban Chicago area. Founded in 2003 by a bunch of gung-ho Marines, as a Division 3 USA Rugby Club, the team was formed to create a competitive, social atmosphere for both experienced ruggers and those who have never played before. Our home field is located at Riverside Park in Hammond, Indiana.

FALL SEASON - NOW PLAYING!
We have started practicing every Tuesday and Thursday at 5:30PM in Riverside Park. New players are always welcome, and no prior rugby experience is required! We are a men's club for ages 17+, and many of our players come from other athletic backgrounds, such as football, soccer, and wrestling, and we introduce them to the great sport of rugby.
The Fall 2014 Schedule has been posted! For more information contact Will Rolle at (219) 381-1181 or use the "Contact Us" form below.
"In our country, true teams rarely exist... social barriers and personal ambitions have reduced athletes to dissolute cliques or individuals thrown together for mutual profit... Yet these rugby players with their muddied, cracked bodies, are struggling to hold onto a sense of humanity that we in America have lost and are unlikely to regain. The game may only be to move a ball forward on a dirt field, but the task can be accomplished with an unshackled joy and its memories will be a permanent delight. The men who play on that rugby field are more alive than too many of us will ever be. The foolish emptiness we think we perceive in their existence is only our own." --Victor Cahn
