Proud Sponsors of Rugby
Our iconic Greene King IPA has been a part of all the greatest moments in English rugby in recent years through our official partnership with the RFU and numerous club sponsorships. As the headline sponsor for the Greene King IPA rugby championship, the second tier in English rugby as well as the official England Community Club partner, Greene King is one of biggest supporters of the game at every level. Through our sponsorship of premiership giants Saracens, Harlequins, Newcastle Falcons, Worcester Warriors and Gloucester Rugby, to hundreds of local rugby clubs, including in our home town of Bury St Edmunds, Greene King is proud to support community rugby.
The launch of the 2017-18 season saw the Rugby Football Union (RFU) renew its partnership with Greene King for a further three seasons.
Greene King is proud to sponsor the Greene King IPA Championship, consolidating our position as one of the key supporters of rugby at all levels of the game. Following the announcement, RFU Chief Commercial Officer Sophie Goldschmidt commented: "We are delighted to have reached agreement with Greene King IPA to become the title partner of the RFU Championship. The Championship has developed significantly thanks to the continued commitment of the clubs and the Union. It has led the way with innovations such as RefCam and live Twitter streaming for fans, which have helped it become the fantastic competition it is today."
