Two Years To Go
3 September 2013
Posted by on
The eighth Rugby World Cup will kick off at Twickenham on Friday 18 September 2015 and Rugby Clubs in England will have their greatest opportunity in a generation to grow the game in their communities.
The Two Years To Go date will spark a new set of Lead Up & legacy initiatives from the RFU to add to those already in place. The past year has seen more investment in facilities, extra coaching and referee courses, and an All Schools Project to introduce children to the game. As RWC 2015 gets closer more projects will be introduced but clubs can’t sit back and just wait for things to happen.
The Clubs that will make the most of this opportunity are those that start making plans now to take advantage of the huge upsurge in interest a home Rugby World Cup will bring.
Eastern Counties is hosting a Conference for clubs at Cambridge RFC on Monday 23 September 2013 to get them started on the planning process. Speakers include Debbie Jeavons from England 2015, Steve Grainger, Rugby Development Director at the RFU and ex-England captain and British Lion Peter Wheeler. Hear about what is is being planned in terms of the tournament itself, the volunteer strategy for the six weeks it is being staged, and how the RFU will be supporting clubs in growing the game before the World Cup and in the years afterwards.
