Roberto Osborne Maestre, a former player for R.A.C.A. Sevilla and lover of rugby began an initiative to enlist experienced rugby players, rugby fans and anyone with an interest in the game. He used various means to reach out to potential players in order to get the project off the ground.

The first meeting which took place in Marbella Rugby Club's old home was attended by a considerable number of people. In fact enough people had become involved that after a few weeks and a further couple of meetings things began to take shape and Marbella Rugby Club started to host matches of Touch Rugby. Events started to snowball from then and by November 1988 we faced R.A.C.A. Sevilla in our first competitive match at the infamous Chapina Stadium, which has since disappeared. This match was a baptism of fire for many of the inexperienced players that made up Marbella Rugby Club's 20 man squad. That now legendary game was played in Marbella's blue & white kit which Roberto Osborne paid for, these have since become Marbella Rugby Club's official colours.

Since that day much has happened, but no-one expected the initiative of one rugby lover to have come so far. In these last twenty years Marbella Rugby Club has left its birthplace & home for five years, in Sotogrande, Cadiz to move to a ground that we have developed ourselves (16th March 1993). The past twenty years have been the initial stage of a project which aims towards the future and has seen us established as one of the best clubs in Spain for developing young talented players. In the next twenty years we must face the challenge of complementing our first class youth establishment with a Senior team which aspires to reach the highest levels of rugby in Spain.
