Try Tag Rugby is pleased to announce the sponsorship of the Brixton Bulls Rugby League Club and Finsbury Park Rugby Club for the 2018 season.
Both clubs submitted winning applications to Try Tag Rugby’s call for sponsors and were narrowed down from all the eligible applications.
Try Tag Rugby CEO, Phillip Browne said, “It was excellent to see another high volume of good quality applications as per last year, for our annual Rugby club sponsorship of both a Rugby League and Rugby Union club in London.”
We’re all about promoting all forms of Rugby participation and this is a small way we can help contribute to the development of Rugby.”
“Both Brixton Bulls and Finsbury Park had strong applications for the sponsorship with a clear plan of how to spend the additional income and how it will benefit the club and the community. They will both receive £500 in sponsorship from Try Tag Rugby.
“We’re delighted to be helping both the Brixton Bulls and Finsbury Park clubs this year and look forward to following their progress.”
Brixton Bulls RLFC plan to use the sponsorship money to launch their first ever open age women’s team with the funds going towards kitting out the team.
Finsbury Park RFC is one of the most central clubs in London and was founded at the birthplace of Tag Rugby in London, Finsbury Park. The sponsorship funds will go towards growing the young club and the purchase of new training equipment.
Brixton Bulls are a community rugby league club running mixed teams at under 7s, 9s, 11s and men’s and women’s teams. The club was established in 2004 and has provided opportunities for hundreds of young people to play rugby league in south London over the course of its history.
In 2016, the club ran their first ever men’s team, comprising a mixture of former junior players, university graduates, rugby league novices, and Try Tag Rugby converts. The side reached the London Championship Final, narrowly losing out by two points. In 2017, with a fresh crop of young rugby league players graduating to first grade, they went one better by winning the league!
The club launched Mini Bulls Rugby in 2016, providing year-round rugby games and activities for children aged between 4-11. The initiative has been a great success, and they already have over 60 children registered on programmes.
With the help of the additional funding from Try Tag Rugby, the Brixton Bulls will launch their first ever open age women’s team. Training will start at the end of April. If you would like to get involved in women’s rugby league in London, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Brixton Bulls have a reputation as a professionally run, friendly and inclusive rugby club in south London, and welcome players of all ages and abilities.
Finsbury Park RFC was formed in 2011 with the help of The Access to Sport Project to give young people in the Finsbury Park area the opportunity to get involved and experience rugby union.
Shortly after, they introduced regular training sessions for 8-16 year olds. In the summer of 2012, Finsbury Park RFC started delivering regular adult sessions, opening the club to everyone in the community so they could be apart of the club and get involved in rugby union in the area.
Climbing eight leagues in five seasons, including winning a number of cups and trophies, the club has well and truly entrenched itself in the North London, Hertfordshire and Middlesex rugby scene.
Now running two teams, the club cater for all types of rugby ability: beginner, social, high level or veteran. As a community sports club, they also welcome new coaches and volunteers and are a welcoming and inclusive central London club.
They pride themselves on being able to give back to the community and that is what Try Tag Rugby is about and why we’d like to align our brand to this new and exciting club.
