Valley Rugby Football Club in Hong Kong
Societe Generale has a long standing history of supporting rugby. We have been sponsoring Valley Rugby Football Club (Valley RFC), one of Hong Kong’s largest sports clubs and leading rugby teams, since 2014. Valley RFC was founded in 1975 by a group of ex-members of the Royal Hong Kong Police Rugby Club, some displaced individuals and schoolboys who joined forces to enter a team in the local rugby competition.
The result was Valley RFC, so named because of its home in Happy Valley. Since its formation, the Club has aspired to provide an environment that mixes a strong social element with that of a competitive sports club and this has produced the spirit of Valley RFC.
Today, Valley RFC is one of the most successful sports clubs in Hong Kong. In addition, Valley RFC has an academy which offers coaching and promotes sport in schools and the community. Through its affiliate Valley Fort RFC, Valley RFC also has the largest contingent of rugby-playing children in Asia, with some 800 boys and girls from ages 4 to 18 wearing the Valley Fort shirt every weekend.
Running out in Black and Red, the Valley RFC teams are training and playing at the Happy Valley stadium on Pitch 6.
