The Abu Dhabi Saracens Rugby Union Club was founded in 2011 as a privately owned organisation. This led to the establishment of a successful sports organization in a sport market previously dominated by a single club. The year 2015 brought change to The Club with conversion to a community-based not for profit Rugby Club. Since 2015 Saracens has been, and continues to be managed by a committee of dedicated volunteers, fee paying players and social members, as well as supported by local businesses and community partners.
The name “Saracens” defines our club as part of the Global Saracens Brand or Network with roots based in the United Kingdom from the London based “Saracens” Premiership Rugby Club. The Saracens Rugby Network is international whereby not only in the UAE but also Saracens Rugby Clubs in the USA, Russia, Tonga, Georgia, Malaysia, Kenya, Brazil, and Romania.
In a very short time The Abu Dhabi Saracens established itself as a formidable participant in the UAE and Gulf Rugby Community. In 2013 Saracens won the 1stGrade West Asia Premiership as well as the UAE 1stGrade Premiership competitions: all titles competed in.
The Abu Dhabi Saracens has competed in all UAE competitions since its inception including a Ladies team and Juniours program. At its peak we had over 120 active players across all teams.
