Strongly Supported

The Brumbies have the highest percentage of members per capita of any Super Rugby franchise. When many of the teams’ TV audience declined in 2016 the Brumbies had a boost, especially in emerging markets like the UK and Japan. When the Brumbies were featured on Fox Sports they delivered an average viewership of 68,600 more than the Reds, Force and Rebels and behind only the Waratahs.

Brumbies History

The Brumbies have the most storied history of any Australian Super Rugby franchise. They have reached six finals and been crowned Champions on two occasions. Founded in 1996 the Brumbies reached their maiden final a year later and first tasted success in 2001 defeating the Sharks 36-6 in the Final in front of a crowd of 26,271 at Bruce Stadium. The team repeated the feat in 2004 with the epic 47-38 success over the Crusaders in the showdown which was, once more, played at Bruce Stadium.

Wallaby Production Line

The ACT has always proven to be a fertile breeding ground for future international stars and the Brumbies are immensely proud of the record that nearly 50% of players who have represented the franchise have gone on to play for Australia.

Our world class high performance program is regarded as one of the best programs in world rugby and has helped the club recruit players from all corners of the globe whilst never neglecting the local talent.

Canberra Talent

Local talent from Canberra and the surrounding region has been a hallmark of the club since its inception in 1996. Indeed, the number of local players who have made a name for themselves in the colours of the Brumbies, and before that their predecessors, is huge.

Currently the Brumbies can boast of home-grown products in their squad, with local born Wallabies players.
