Mongolia becomes World Rugby full member

The World Rugby Council has approved the recommendation of the Executive and Regional Committees to elevate the Mongolian Rugby Football Union (MRFU) to full member status, continuing the global expansion of the sport which has 128 members across six regions.

The MRFU was established in 2003 following its initiation by one of Mongolia’s famous wrestlers, Mr.Tserenpuntsag Tsedendamba, who now serves as the member of Mongolian Parliament. The union became an associate member of the international federation in November 2004 and has now met the necessary governance criteria to achieve World Rugby full member status.

Mongolian rugby started with occasional social matches between locals and expats has grown to become one of the most exciting new team sports in the country.
