ST. LOUIS, Mo. - The St. Louis Crusaders, Missouri’s only all-inclusive and gay men’s rugby team, are delighted to announce a one-year sponsorship with Just John Nightclub. The sponsorship is a welcome step as the rugby team continues to become more involved with the local LGBT community.

“Picking a home bar became essential to our continued growth,” said Eddie Neuenschwander, President of the Crusaders. “It gives us the opportunity to create a presence in The Grove that will allow people to find us whether its after a practice, after a match, or just hanging out.”

The terms of the sponsorship include priority status for fundraisers, hosting of all team meetings and third halves, and brand new jerseys with Just John’s logo.


“This partnership is the beginning of a great relationship between two premier St. Louis LGBT staples,” said Robert Fischer, PR & Marketing for the Crusaders. “There are so many new opportunities that we hope to explore including a big surprise in our spring season that will draw other all-inclusive teams to the area.”

If you are interested in joining the Crusaders, contact Mike MacKillop, Director of Recruiting at match.secretary " at" or visit for more information about the team and the sport of rugby.
