The Minneapolis Mayhem Rugby Football Club is a different kind of rugby team. Our club strives to promote participation in rugby by traditionally underrepresented groups, including gay men. We provide an inclusive environment in which members of diverse communities can learn the laws and practice of rugby and have the opportunity to compete at local, regional, national and international venues.

Mayhem RFC will host Bingham Cup 2010 in Minneapolis.
The Mark Bingham Memorial Tournament, or Bingham Cup, is a biannual international, gay rugby union tournament.
The tournament date is slated for 17-20 June 2010.
