Land Rover – Official Vehicle of Premiership Rugby
As the Official Vehicle of Premiership Rugby, Land Rover not only provides support to the top clubs in the country but also to the future stars of the game through the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup. The Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup is a series of regional rugby festivals for under 11 and under 12 rugby teams. Now in its fourth year, the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup has seen over 21,000 children take part!
The Premiership Rugby clubs’ community departments were inundated with requests from local clubs to be a part of the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup, with most festivals having an astonishing thirty-two teams competing. With this, thousands of young aspiring rugby players, parents and spectators gathered at the events to be a part of the action.
The Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup also provides young players with the chance to meet their heroes. Premiership Rugby players conclude the day’s proceedings by meeting with the teams and presenting an awards ceremony – an unforgettable experience for these youngsters.
Harlequins second-row Charlie Matthews commented on the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup:
“Being here today was great. Land Rover is doing a fantastic job in supporting youth rugby and providing the opportunity for these children to play in such a professionally run environment. Hopefully there will be a future Harlequins player among the competitors.”
As well as being crowned as winners on the day, the teams are provided with the once in a lifetime opportunity to be a part of the Land Rover Parade of Champions. This will see them presented to a full-house at Twickenham Stadium as they parade around the hallowed turf during half-time of the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final.
