About Us

WHO WE ARE

The original Overseas RUFC was formed in November 1946. Although rugby had been played before, the Overseas was the first civilian rugby club in Malta and would compete against British forces sides and visiting teams. For 27 years the club was purely a rugby club, becoming a ‘Rugby and Sports Club’ in 1973.

Following the Forces departure from the islands in the late 1970s, the original club was disbanded. The game was kept alive due to a few enthusiasts who continued to train at Marsa. In 1989, the Overseas was re-formed.

The initial phase of the club and its history is recorded in two books authored by one of it’s original members, Norman Morgan. These also serve as a historical record of the development of the sport on the islands. A copy of the books is available at the National Library of Malta. A scan of the history books can also be downloaded from here:

From 2013/2014, the club officially represents the localities of Swieqi, Madliena and Ibragg.

Swieqi Overseas RUFC and Swieqi Sports Association

This sports organisation is the result of the collaboration between 3 sports organisations, Swieqi Overseas Rugby Union Football Club, Swieqi United Football Club and Swieqi Phoenix Handball Club. Its objective is to bring together different sports disciplines in Swieqi, Madliena and Ibrag under one banner.

The association promotes pooling of resource, sharing of information and establishment of standards for everyone involved. Its aim is to provide opportunities to anybody interested in different sports, and especially Rugby, Handball and Football.

This applies to different aspects such as coaching, playing and administrative. The association’s goal is also to encourage children and young adults to enroll into the different nurseries at a younger age, and therefore being introduced to sports fundamentals earlier in their lives.
