It is the rugby union branch of the multisport club S.S. Lazio, probably the biggest European multisport organization, which operates also the famous association football team with the same name.

They were the first XV in Italy established in Rome in 1927, as “S.S. Lazio Rugby”, the rugby section of Lazio Sports Association. The founders were the brothers Vinci: Eugenio (Vinci I), Paolo (Vinci II), Francesco (Vinci III) and Pietro (Vinci IV). The Oval eagles debuted on 13 May 1928 at Rome's National Stadium (demolished and rebuilt in the 1950s as Stadio Flaminio) in front of 20,000 spectators. S.S. Lazio Rugby defeated “XV Legione Leonessa d'Italia” by a score of 17-0.

They play their home games at the Giulio Onesti Olimpic Preparation Center of Acqua Acetosa, in the Parioli district.
