The Cyprus Rugby Federation (CRF) has joined World Rugby as an Associate Member.

The CRF meets the criteria for associate membership laid down by World Rugby regulations with a six-team domestic league now in place with four of those teams registered with the CRF.

World Rugby Chairman Bernard Lapasset said: "We are delighted to be welcoming Cyprus as an associate member of World Rugby.

“Rugby is experiencing unprecedented global growth and interest with more than 6.6 million men, women and children playing the game.

“Today's announcement certainly underlines rugby’s ability to reach out to new communities and countries in every region."

Congratulations to Cyprus!

I think there are requirements and criteria to be an Associate Member relating to the domestic competition from reading the article.

Now that Cyprus meets those, they have become Associate Members. The next step is to become a Test Nation and play with the big boys.
