Founded in 2018 UnionAthletic is a rugby owned, rugby inspired athletic and athleisure wear brand. Our mission is to provide quality, durable, comfortable athleticwear to athletes looking for a better option that will hold up to the demands of rugby and other sports that require a tougher garment without sacrificing design or comfort.

No placements, no cost per placement, and no cost per color; unlimited possibilities on gear that is proven to stand the test of severe physical contact.


We service need for all sports, but have a particularly heavy influence on rugby, soccer, military & 1st responder, and baseball training communities. Our basic and semi custom lines are available directly through the shop, but through our custom options will provide your club or league with exactly the design you want on the best fitting option, at a competitive rate. We do not charge setup or hidden fees for these items, so please contact us today to get started.
