Introduction

The U.S. Air Force Men’s Rugby sevens team is comprised of top athletes from active duty, guard, and reserve forces from around the world pursuing excellence and integrity to become leaders, innovators, and warriors. With the 7s team established in 2012, the USAF Men’s Rugby team has finished second every year in the Armed Forces Championship. Their launchpad and team aim to propel them to new heights. They take the pitch with only 7 but in their jersey lies the entire support of Air Force ruggers and warriors from around the world who have given the ultimate sacrifice. The sky has never been the limit for the USAF, and their players strive to be the best on and off the field as players, Airmen, and citizens. Their kits represent Air Force pride and history while their logo represents Sevens and the concept of flight. In addition to the Men’s 7s team, the Air Force rugby family includes a men’s and a women’s 15s team, the first women’s rugby team in the U.S. Armed Forces.


AF Rugby old logo.jpg
The original Air Force Rugby Logo was designed by Major Charles Curran when he was one of the first Air Force Directors during the original Combined Services Committee days.

The 15s logo originally had the year of the AF championships


Air Force 15s logo 2017.JPG
When we started winning them all it was converted to "XV". The eagle represents the warrior ethos of rugby and the stars are the fifteen players. Not sure where the rugby player running came from. The black F-16 represents our fallen ruggers. Prior to that, we had a logo that was a spin-off of the Combined Services logo, as the designer of that logo designed the Air Force one.

We had a hybrid logo before that when Coach McQuaide asked Tom Beers to design a logo that was distinct and completely different from the traditional 15s look to put into the Las Vegas Sevens program. Tom asked for a little more guidance, as all good designers tend to do, and Andy said "c'mon Tom you are the designer, just make it swooshy with an airplane contrail and work in the number 7 and I am sure it will be good". Tom did a great job!
