In advance of Saturday's international men's rugby match between Luxembourg and Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Rugby Europe Conference 1 in Zenica, the Luxembourg Rugby Federation has issued a statement that heralds the rise of the game in the Grand Duchy while also reaching out for quality rugby facilities.

"Rugby has been steadily growing in popularity in Luxembourg, and the national team's progress in recent years has been nothing short of remarkable. The Luxembourg Rugby Federation has been working tirelessly to develop the sport within the country, and the selection of the team for this important match reflects the fruits of their labour.

The sport of rugby is experiencing significant growth in Luxembourg, with the Luxembourg Rugby Federation (FLR) reporting a surge in interest and participation. Despite this positive trend, access to rugby pitches remains a challenge for enthusiasts and the federation is expecting to welcome over 1000 licensed members by the end of the 2023-24 season.
Rugby, known for its physicality, teamwork, and strong sense of community, has been steadily gaining popularity in the Grand Duchy.

The FLR attributes this growth to increased awareness, successful grassroots initiatives, and a growing pool of talented athletes within the country.

However, as rugby's popularity continues to grow, access to suitable pitches for training and competitive matches has become a pressing issue. The FLR acknowledges the challenge of securing quality rugby facilities for its members and remains committed to working with local authorities to address this concern."
