Rugby Union Donau Wien

Rugby Union Donau Wien – ROB (Austria)

The widely recognized initiative RUGBY OPENS BORDERS (ROB) promotes inter-cultural exchange and collaboration through sporting challenges. Independent from size, weight, gender or origin, everyone is welcomed by rugby with open arms.


ROB offers young refugees and migrants the opportunity to be part of the Austrian rugby community. Our holistic integration concept is built upon special weekly training designed for this group, which culminate in “get-togethers” involving cooking and eating in the clubhouse. Here we do not just communicate the great values and principles of rugby, but also give the refugees the opportunity to talk with our care/coaching team and other young Austrian players. The main focus of these meetings is that of living together and building social links in Austria. Talented participants also have the chance to step up to the youth teams of the cooperating clubs where a more intensive exchange with young Austrians gives them them opportunity to integrate long-term into the community.
