Sanctioned by World Rugby under the hospices of the Islamic Solidarity Sports Federation (ISSF), the Crescent Cup or the Islamic Nations Rugby Championship is a men's rugby union tournament contested between invited Muslim majority national teams in the 15's format.

The tournament was first held in 2015, hosted by Malaysia; co-organised with the Malaysia Rugby Union. The hosts Malaysia are the current champions, having defeated Algeria in the final.[1]

Although the tournament has been retrospectively described as 'inaugural', as of March 2016 no further tournaments have been announced.
