It All Started When…
In 2014, the idea of bringing Elite Level Rugby League to Atlanta became a reality with the founding of the Atlanta Rhinos Rugby League Club. The team was conceived by Southeastern Rugby League LLC, who saw an incredible opportunity in the Atlanta market to cement a sport that will provide a high octane, yet affordable entertainment value during the summer months. After forming a partnership with the long time Atlanta Renegades Rugby team, two local Rugby legends in Bob Taylor and Randall Joseph, and Australian businessman Greg Frost, the Atlanta Rhinos were born.
Soon after inception the Atlanta team formed a partnership with one of the Worlds most successful and iconic Rugby teams, the LEEDS RHINOS from the UK. The value of international exposure from this high profile professional team is already being felt with the Atlanta team having received global recognition from sporting media and international fans.
The goal of the Rhinos organization is very simple; to provide fans and supporters the highest value for their sporting entertainment dollar. With the similarity of this “Hybrid” Rugby Code to American Football, the Rhinos will put an exciting, hard hitting, action packed, sporting entertainment product on the field. Games will always offer low cost entry, free entry to children through sponsor partnerships, and inexpensive supporter merchandise and concessions. Our goal is to provide a professional sporting product that can be attended and enjoyed by every person in Atlanta.
We are also committed to our sponsors, and are thankful for their support. We ask every fan to always consider our sponsors any time they have a need for the product or service provided. The Rhinos are a community team, and we are all part of the community. Our players, our fans, our sponsors and ourselves, are all part of the Rhinos Family in Atlanta, and we encourage loyalty within.
We are dedicated to providing the most positive and professional experience to our players. We believe by providing a culture that fosters a serious approach to the game, those individuals who wish to embrace our great sport with professional attitude, will have the best opportunity to pursue its greatest heights, while enjoying the sport to its fullest extent.
And finally to the Leeds Rhinos in the UK; we are honored to bear the name of such an Iconic Team within the Global Rugby League Community. We are committed to inviting our USA Based fans to become familiar with our UK counterparts, and we will do battle on the field during every game with the effort and respect the Rhinos name deserves.
