About us

Glasgow Warriors compete in the BKT United Rugby Championship and Investec Champions Cup and play their matches at Scotstoun Stadium in Glasgow.

The Warriors are the defending champions of the BKT URC, having lifted the trophy after an unforgettable 21-16 win over the Vodacom Bulls in Pretoria in June 2024.

The BKT United Rugby Championship (URC) – launched in 2021 as the evolution of the former Guinness PRO14 competition – includes teams from Wales, Ireland, Italy, South Africa and Scotland, while the Challenge Cup features the best sides from the URC, Gallagher Premiership and Top14.

In 2015, the club claimed its first major honour by defeating Munster 31-13 in the Guinness PRO12 final at Belfast’s Kingspan Stadium.

A second league title followed in memorable fashion in 2024, as a Franco Smith-led squad defeated the Vodacom Bulls 21-16 in thrilling fashion at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria to lift the BKT URC trophy.

The Warriors have also reached a further two finals in 2014 and 2019, the latter played in front of over 47,000 spectators at Celtic Park.

In addition, Glasgow Warriors have reached two Heineken Champions Cup quarter-finals. The Warriors were beaten by eventual champions Saracens on both occasions, losing out at Allianz Park in 2017 and 2019.

The club reached its first-ever European final in 2023, enjoying an unbeaten run to the final of the 2023 EPCR Challenge Cup in Dublin. Once more, only eventual champions Toulon could prevent the Warriors from lifting silverware, with thousands of Glasgow supporters making the trip to the Aviva Stadium for the occasion.

Glasgow Warriors possess a proud track record of producing international talent, with 21 members of the Glasgow Warriors squad selected for the 2015 Rugby World Cup – more than any other club side in world rugby.

This track record continues to the present day, with 20 Warriors selected in their respective international squads across the 2022/23 season and ahead of the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

In 2023, the club also launched a women’s squad for the first time in its history, as a squad comprised of some of Scotland’s brightest talents came together to compete in the 2023/24 Celtic Challenge.

The squad played its inaugural match on Saturday 30 December 2023, running out against Edinburgh at Hive Stadium, before playing their first home fixture a fortnight later when taking on Irish side Wolfhounds at Scotstoun.
