Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup
Grassroots rugby at its best – The Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup
The ever-popular Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup sees aspiring young rugby players across the country getting the chance to play a series of matches against other teams from their local area.
The Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup is a nationwide development programme for under-11 and under-12 teams. The long-running grassroots rugby series, supported by Land Rover since its inception, was the first of its kind to be officiated by Premiership Rugby and is run in conjunction with all 12 Premiership Rugby clubs.
Youngsters attending the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup grassroots festival will also have the chance to meet Newcastle Falcons players. The players will be offering advice for aspiring young rugby players, meeting the clubs and families who make these festivals so special and watching the next generation of talent in their matches.
The Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup has seen nearly 68,000 children take part to date, from all over the country, providing opportunities for under-11 and under-12 players to play, develop and excel in the game. So, get involved and support the young stars of your local clubs.
All teams attending each Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup will be given the opportunity to win the chance to go to Twickenham for the Aviva Premiership Rugby final.

The Vantec Girls Rugby Programme is secondary-school-targeted activity, looking to increase girls’ rugby participation across the North East and Cumbria.
We are in five key areas: Northumberland, Newcastle, Hartlepool, Sunderland and Kendal. Across these areas we deliver to 20 schools at under-13 age group for an hour of rugby coaching per week, across five weeks.
Once the five weeks are completed participants will have a festival at a local rugby club, and will also receive an invitation to a development day at Kingston Park. We will also provide teachers with an opportunity for professional development by attending a teacher education day as well as working with local clubs to transition this schools activity into a club environment.Match day Festivals
