Created by RBS, RugbyForce is a community initiative that supports local rugby clubs in building for their future.
RugbyForce is run through our regional brands - as Ulster Bank RugbyForce in Ireland, Royal Bank RugbyForce in Scotland and NatWest RugbyForce in Wales and England - in conjunction with the local relevant unions.
Since the initiative was launched in 2009, we have helped over 2,000 community rugby clubs by providing them with tools to help coordinate a community-wide effort to give their facilities a 'make over' and financial support. The initiative now also combines a club education programme which provides advice and tips to assist them in becoming more financially viable small businesses.
NatWest RugbyForce - England
Last year's NatWest RugbyForce programme was a huge success, with over 500 clubs and 10,000 volunteers across England taking part in the DIY weekend in June.
2015 will again see England Coach Stuart Lancaster head-up the programme in England as the official NatWest RugbyForce figurehead. The weekend of 27 & 28 June will undoubtedly be a very busy weekend this year as clubs get ready to be THE place to watch all of England's very important matches in 2015.
