The Western Force is a professional rugby team based in Western Australia competing in the elite Super Rugby AU and Super Rugby Trans-Tasman competitions.
As an organisation, the Force has a short but proud history, having been formed in 2004 and making its Super Rugby debut in 2006 against the ACT Brumbies at their original home at Subiaco Oval. Western Australia’s rugby community is built on passion, determination, and a never-said-die attitude that has provided inspiration in the face of adversity.
With the club making its first Super Rugby finals appearance in 2021 and announcing the re-structure of its own dedicated Academy Program, the future is bright as the Force continues to go from strength to strength.
Backed by Tattarang, we are ready to rebuild to be bigger and better along with our passionate local community of over 6000 members.
