LGBTI+ Inclusive Sports Teams

Heroes, On and Off the Field

The Heroes team formed in 2018 as Christchurch’s first gay-inclusive rugby team, affiliated with the Christchurch Football Club. As a means of keeping fit during the off-season many in the team joined the touch rugby competition at Burnside Park and due to interest from outside the rugby union community both mens and mixed touch teams were formed for this. A trust was created to provide a legal structure and protection, with fundraising activities have also enabled us to give back to organisations we believe are heroic.
