The Enterprise Cup is the oldest and longest running competition in Kenya rugby. First played in 1930, it is also one of the oldest competitions in Kenyan sport.
The Enterprise Cup was originally an annual fifteens rugby competition played between sides from Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. It is now a fifteens rugby knock out competition for top Kenyan club sides. The original cup was donated by sailors from the HMS Enterprise who had toured East Africa in 1928.
The only years in which the competition has not been played is between 1940–1946 due to World War II , 1987 because an international rugby competition was held on RFUEA Ground as part of the 4th All Africa Games and the 2011/2012 season.
