Vision, Mission and Core Values

Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) is the governing body of Rugby Union in Kenya. It organizes Kenyan national teams and various competitions. It is a member of the International Rugby Board.

Rugby has a long history in Kenya. Rugby Football Union of Kenya (RFU-K) was formed in 1923. The RFU-K was dissolved and the district unions incorporated into the Rugby Football Union of East Africa (RFUEA) upon its formation in 1956. After the formation of national unions in Uganda and Tanzania it was decided to form the Kenya Rugby Football Union in 1970 to combine the provincial unions within the country under a national union but still underneath the umbrella of the RFUEA.

KRU also oversees Kenyan schools rugby, including the Prescott Cup (for the nation's top tier clubs), and the Damu Pevu Shield (for second tier clubs and the second XV's of top tier clubs).

KRU also organises the Kenya national rugby union team and participates Confederation of African Rugby (CAR) tournaments, but has never qualified for the Rugby World Cup. The Kenyan national sevens team is much more successful, doing well in the IRB Sevens World Series, as well the Commonwealth Games and Rugby World Cup Sevens.

At the 2008 Kenyan Sports Personality of the Year awards KRU won the federation of the year category.

The home ground of Kenya Rugby Union is the RFUEA Ground in Nairobi.
