Games that resemble Rugby appear as far back in history as 300 BC in Greece. The modern version of the sport was created at Rugby School in Rugby, Warwickshire (England) in the 19th Century. This recreational game of the early 1800’s was first formalize in 1857 in a match in Scotland between Edinburgh University and Edinburgh Academicals (AKA “the Accies”). The Edinburg Accies still operate as a formal Rugby Union Football Club and are the oldest rugby club in Scotland. Worldwide, rugby is an incredibly popular sport and has influenced Football, Australian-rules Football, and the fashion world (ala the Rugby Shirt).
