Have your business seen in the best of company

Southend Rugby Football Club is one of the most prestigious rugby clubs in Essex and one of the oldest in the world.

We look forward to starting rugby again at the club in August/September 2022.  We anticipate high numbers of players, spectators, sponsors and members next season after the Covid period.

We were formed in 1870 and so in 2022 we will be over 150 years old.  We will be celebrating by hosting various events throughout the season and getting the whole town behind us including all of our sponsors and supporters.

We are looking for businesses to advertise with us in the 1st XV programme, boards around the ground, kit & player sponsorship, and hospitality packages. This is a powerful opportunity to promote your business (very cost-effectively).

We are delighted so say that Paul Robinson Solicitors will be our main sponsor again and will be on the front of the shirt but we still have space on the rest of the shirt, shorts and other training and pre and post-match kit, plus other teams kit also.

We get good spectator numbers per game and have over 1000 member’s including a large youth/family membership.  As well as this we have a strong following from local and national businesses and get a good media following.

The match day programme is distributed FREE on entry to all spectators. In the current climate, it’s important to continue to market your business but make every pound spent work as hard for you as it can.
