Commercial Partners

All Shapes and Sizes Welcome!

Like our rugby, everyone is welcome and CRFC commercial support comes in all shapes and sizes. Below are just some of the ways you can PARTNER with us.

Promotion

  • Playing Kit. You can advertise your business with any of our five senior teams, five youth teams or six mini teams.
  • Pitch hoardings. Hoardings around the 1st XV pitch and clubhouse offer permanent brand exposure at our busy Mill Road HQ.
  • Playing equipment. Running nearly thirty teams requires a lot of balls, bags, bibs and other baggage. You can help provide equipment for the team or teams of your choice.
  • Fixture card. Gold Partners and above have their logo included.
  • Partner directory. List your services to our many members who are always keen to support the people who support our club.
  • Web presence. Our CRFC web site is one of the most visited in UK rugby. Silver partners and above get web recognition.
  • Email advertising. We now allow controlled promotion to our database of over 1,000 members. They are profiled too to ensure you get the right message to the right people.
  • Match balls. Buy a Match ball for a home fixture. In return you get publicity on match day and a miniature CRFC match ball for your office.
