The 2017-18 sports season is the year zero for Luiss’ rugby team, as many of last season’s youngsters graduated and were unable to continue the project for family or work reasons.

During the year, our athletes had the opportunity to train and compete in a high level sporting context, having at their disposal a synthetic grass facility of the latest generation and technical support in collaboration with SS LAZIO RUGBY. These conditions have led to the achievement of an important goal: 5 athletes of Luiss have made their debut in Serie C1, a series greater than the C2 last year and the team won the first phase of the Championship, playing in the Promotion Round to go up to Serie B. Some of these athletes have entered the sport thanks to AS Luiss.
