Established in 2014, The Brooklyn Kings Rugby League Football Club is located in Brooklyn, New York. The Kings currently practice at Brooklyn Bridge Park, and play at Bushwick Inlet Park.
Touted as the grandfather of American Football, Rugby League shares many similarities with USA’s much loved sport. In short summary there are no pads, no helmets, no forward passes, a running clock, a maximum tackle count of six, and 13 players on each team, all of which play both sides of the ball. Rugby League is the toughest sport on earth with huge hits, massive plays and non-stop action!
Kings Game Day is reminiscent of a summer festival in Brooklyn, the cultural heart of New York City. Not only does Rugby League deliver powerful excitement on the field, but each home game experience provides full concessions, prize giveaways, merchandise sales, partner activation, the Brooklyn Royals Dance Team and opportunities to interact with the players. Join us this summer in celebrating the inauguration of the Brooklyn Kings!
Mission: To provide Brooklyn and the greater New York City metro area with the opportunity to play, spectate and engage in the sport of Rugby League.
Vision: To build the Brooklyn Kings as a prominent sport/entertainment brand and as the premier Rugby property in the USA.
