Wales schools and clubs to receive kit from official World Cup supplier

Schools and junior rugby clubs in Wales are being given the chance to win free specialist training equipment provided by the same company supplying teams at this year’s Rugby World Cup.

Aramis Rugby, a family-run business based here in the UK, is providing training, grounds, and fitness equipment to the 20 teams taking part in the Rugby World Cup and is also an official partner of the Italian, Fijian, and Samoa national teams.

Its specialist equipment is currently playing a key role in helping the national sides prepare for their World Cup fixtures as the tournament heads to the quarter-final stages – with their products broadcast to millions of watching fans across the globe. Wales is set for a huge quarter-final fixture against Argentina this Saturday.

Now, schools and junior rugby clubs are being given the opportunity to win free equipment as the company looks to continue its commitment to growing the game at grassroots level.

Aramis Rugby provides training equipment and kit to hundreds of clubs across Europe, but Wales is one of its key areas, with more clubs in the region turning to it for specialist equipment than almost anywhere else in the UK.

Roshni Mahajan, sales director and Aramis Rugby, said: “It has been absolutely amazing to be supplying equipment to the best teams and players in world rugby and seeing so many of our products being used at the Rugby World Cup is something everyone at the company is incredibly proud of.

“As a family-run business Aramis Rugby is built around the very best values and whenever we begin working with a new professional club, or partner with an international team, we also think carefully about how we can use that success to support the growth of the game and help grassroots teams.

“We wanted to celebrate our involvement at the World Cup by offering schools and junior rugby teams in our key areas the chance to win free equipment similar to that being used in France, so have launched a competition here in Wales doing just that.”

Aramis Rugby is offering a free training pack to one lucky school or junior club in Wales, including tackle bags and specialist training balls designed to develop passing and help promote attacking, running rugby.

To be in with a chance of winning, schools or junior clubs simply need to email Aramis Rugby’s PR partner at [email protected] with your school or club name, where you are based and contact details by the deadline of 14:00 on Thursday 19 October 2023.

One winner will be randomly selected, then be notified by email by Friday 20 October.

Mahajan added: “We know schools and junior clubs rely heavily on volunteers and sometimes struggle for equipment, so we’re keen to do our bit in helping clubs spread a love of the game, help more children get active, and maybe produce some future internationals along the way.”
