NOLA Gold Rugby


NOLA Gold is entering its 5th season as the premier, professional rugby entity in the South. The team has bolstered its roster with top-tier talent not only locally, but nationally and internationally as well. The Gold mixes world-class athletes with an exciting on-field product to deliver a spectacular fan experience. NOLA Gold Rugby moved into the Shrine on Airline in 2020! You can now refer to it as "The Gold Mine on Airline!" It has undergone a complete transformation into a rugby field and is NOLA Gold’s new home.

NOLA Gold Rugby Foundation

The Nola Gold Rugby Foundation works to bring the sport of rugby to all children in our community and to help at-risk youths achieve success through training in the sports business.  Their Major League coaches and players have developed a youth rugby league that will be brought to recreation parks and schools.  NOLA Gold Youth rugby is an exciting opportunity where kids, ages 5-12, can be mentored and coached. This is a great chance to learn all things tackle or flag in the thrilling game of rugby!  Our youth are our future.  Together as a team, we can achieve more on the pitch and in life.  Be a part of changing the community.
