In the beginning…

Krewe Rugby started in 1991 after breaking away from another local rugby club, Tampa RFC. With a goal of starting a locally respected team, Krewe aimed at saving a strongly bonded group of rugby players. Starting with 17 players, the team was told time after time they would fail by other local clubs. Playing their games in St. Petersburg, Krewe traced many challenges both on and off the field. They played Tampa RFC, their former team, a few times and never lost. Through these tough times, Krewe endured practices with only 4 players and other challenges presented to this relatively new team. Krewe always found enough guvs to play their games no matter what.

In the fall of 2012 the Krewe moved their home field to Cuscaden Park located in the historic Ybor area of Tampa Bay. Cuscaden Park has a rich history in sports from baseball greats to boxing and now Rugby.
