England Rugby in partnership with NatWest has launched NatWest RugbyForce 2018, which will take place on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th June 2018.

In its ninth year, the nationwide programme helps grassroots rugby clubs up and down the country attract new members and become stronger and more sustainable for the future by bringing communities together.

“We are thrilled to be welcoming back NatWest RugbyForce for a ninth consecutive year,” said NatWest Senior Sponsorship Manager, Brett Williams.

“Over the past nine years, we’ve seen the phenomenal difference the programme can make, helping clubs to thrive.

“This year’s programme focuses on helping clubs become stronger and more sustainable, and we’ve created a new addition to offer six clubs a grant and support package to help them achieve this. As ever, we’d encourage everyone – whether club members or volunteers – to head down to your local club for the NatWest RugbyForce weekend and get involved.”

Clubs that register for NatWest RugbyForce 2018 can look forward to receiving a host of exciting rewards and benefits, from online tool kits, to marketing and communications advice and access to special offers – all to help clubs become successful businesses.

In a new addition for 2018, six clubs will have the opportunity to receive a large grant of £5000 and a support package while 270 of the clubs who are selected to attend one of the new NatWest RugbyForce workshops will received £750.

Not just for club members
NatWest RugbyForce 2017 was a huge success, with over 600 clubs across England taking part, and next year’s instalment promises to be another great event bringing the rugby family together.
