Three players from San Juan del Sur represented the national team, highlighting the local club's contribution to the national squad.

Background and Growth of Rugby in Nicaragua

Rugby in Nicaragua began in 2011, thanks to Mike, an English Nicaraguan who established the first team at the French college of Managua. The league maintains a strong French influence and has expanded to include:

  • 8 men's teams
  • 4 women's teams
  • 3 regional associations: Rivas, Granada, Managua.

The national teams have been recognized by the IRD since 2019 and compete in the South America Rugby circuit. In November 2023, Nicaragua's men's and women's teams participated in the Central American tournament, earning bronze medals behind Panama and Costa Rica.

Club-Level Success

Gallos de Tola's men's team dominated the 2022 Rugby 7s and Rugby 15s leagues, and their women's team won the Rugby 7s league.

Continued Growth and Support

The Granada Sevens Rugby tournament in April featured national teams from Costa Rica, Honduras, and Guatemala. Additionally, the Canadian team, The Hollers Rugby, has been instrumental in providing ongoing support and equipment for the sport's development in Nicaragua. In 2020, the national team faced off against Toronto Nomad from Canada's first division and secured a victory, demonstrating Nicaragua's growing prowess in rugby.

BVN Real Estate is committed to supporting the rugby community, fostering the sport's growth, and celebrating the achievements of Nicaraguan rugby teams both locally and internationally.
