Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup
Support for the development of the game is typified through its nationwide grassroots rugby initiative, the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup, a national series of rugby festivals for Under-11 and Under-12 teams.
Vital in fostering the values at the heart of the game, the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup is a key part of the grassroots rugby calendar each season that allows Land Rover to connect with the rugby community and the people at the heart of it.
Since its inception, Land Rover has helped thousands of youngsters discover rugby through the annual rugby events with some realising their dreams of going on to play for Premiership Rugby clubs.
Land Rover recognises this area of the game is essential for the continued growth of rugby and plays an important role in local communities. As grassroots rugby returns to action across the UK, Land Rover will continue to support this area of the game.
Lewis Moody, Land Rover ambassador, said: “The return of the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup across the country is a huge boost for grassroots rugby. It is one of the longest standing national series of rugby festivals for under eleven and under twelve youngsters and is always a date in season that clubs look forward to being part of.
“It cannot be underestimated how important these grassroots rugby events are for rugby in the UK. Youngsters will learn vital lessons by playing in these festivals, that will serve them on and off the rugby pitch.
“To date, over 100,000 youngsters have taken part in the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup, with several players going on to play for Premiership Rugby clubs. This shows the pathway these youngsters can take on their rugby journey, thanks to Land Rover’s support of grassroots rugby.”
The Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup is testament to Land Rover’s commitment to supporting rugby at all levels; from grassroots to elite.
