NEW Adult Player Registration for 2024/2025 season

From the 2024/25 season, all adult players, in all formats of the game (including non-contact), will be required to register themselves annually to play rugby within RFU member clubs.

Player registration is currently a club-led process, whereby clubs register players on their behalf. RFU are moving from this to a registration process where players will register themselves to play with a club, using the Game Management System (GMS) account. Clubs will then accept/decline player registrations as they come through.

The move to game-wide registration is intended to benefit the whole rugby community and brings rugby union in line with the majority of other Unions and other sports where this is common practice.

Please note, this is only for players that already have GMS accounts. Players that are currently registered to play by their club will already have a GMS account.

If a player does not have a GMS account, they do not need to complete this process. You will be able create an account from 1 July onwards.
