Leading energy company, SSE, has today been named as a National Community Partner of the Rugby Football Union (RFU). The three-year partnership will see SSE invest significantly to support community rugby in England and take on the title sponsorship of the National and Divisional Leagues.
To help shape their commitment to English rugby, SSE are asking all members of local rugby clubs throughout England to have their say on the resources and facilities that will benefit them most. After the rugby community has had their say through the ‘What Clubs Need’ online survey, SSE will use these results to roll out a season-long programme of rewards, resources and opportunities for rugby clubs. The survey is live today on www.SSERugby.com.
At the launch event this week, SSE National League 3 side Bracknell RFC was announced as the first club to benefit from additional resource to give their season a boost. England International and SSE ambassador Tom Croft visited the club, providing their National League First XV with a training session and delivering the good news that SSE would be giving them exactly what they need in the form of a contribution to their much-needed floodlights.
