The Miami Tridents were established in 1973 by retired semi-pro American football players who wanted to continue playing competitive sports.
Today the team is the premier Rugby Club in the Miami / Fort Lauderdale area with players from across the world including Argentina, Chile, , Spain, France, Australia, England, Scotland, South Africa, and Greece.
Since its founding in 1969 the Miami Rugby Club has sought the highest levels of competition – both domestic and international. The club began as an effort to provide matches for the many British naval ships that visited the Port of Miami. Today the club fields two strong sides.
