Brujos 2023 Spring season starts in 1 month and Spring practice begins! Superbowl fat run! Celtic7s!
Spring isn't quite in the air, yet, but exactly one month from today, February 25th, the New Mexico Brujos kick off their 2023 Spring Rio Grande Rugby Union season! Building off the momentum of their Fall 2022 season that saw the Brujos traveling to a bunch of tournaments, the NM Brujos will need that away game energy for a spring schedule that sees them playing 3 road games. Luckily the Brujos start off the season with two home games, against the ABQ Varks and the Santa Fe Santos respectively, before hitting the road for 3 straight. Their big road campaign starts off at El Paso on March 11th. Remember that the Brujos actually began the 2022/23 RGRU season last fall with a home win against El Paso, putting them 1 and 0 on this season already. They then finish the season with matches at the Varks and finally traveling to Scottsdale on April 15th to finish the season. As always the schedule is subject to change so stay tuned to the Brujos Rugby website Spring schedule page for up to the minute news and info!
Brujos Spring Rugby practice has begun!
As mentioned above, the 2023 Spring Rio Grande Rugby Union season is exactly one month away and that means it's more important than ever to get out to NM Brujos Spring practice! The New Mexico Brujos Spring season begins on February 25th and runs through April 15th, but practice has already begun and regular attendance is key to a successful Spring campaign.
NM Brujos practice is every Tuesday and Thursday starting at 6 PM at UNM's Johnson Field located at 2401 Redondo Dr NE, Albuquerque, NM 87106 East of Johnson Gym.
New Players are always welcome! Cleats, mouthguard, and water very much recommended.
Superbowl foothills fat run returns next month!

The annual New Mexico Brujos Superbowl Fat Boy Run is returning next month! Just in time for the start of the Spring rugby season, this run started years ago as a fun way to knock the winter fat off in anticipation of the season.

It’s a race and there are drinking challenges set up in secret locations along the course.
Please bring a cash donation, $5 minimum.
Event starts at 10 AM on Superbowl Sunday, February 12th, 2023 at the Embudo trailhead at the top of Indian School rd.
