Supporting Rugby

The government has announced an £80 million package of financial support for Premiership Rugby clubs – supporting clubs and local communities as we return to normality.

  • Restrictions on spectators continue to have consequences for many sports and especially on elite Rugby Union clubs, which relies on much of their income coming through spectators.
  • So the Culture Secretary has announced £80 million in loan support to Premiership Rugby clubs, building on the more than £45 million in support provided previously to support grassroots rugby to safeguarding the thousands of clubs who are on the brink as a result of Covid-19 restrictions.
  • This funding will allow the league to complete its season and support the survival of Premiership Rugby, safeguarding our sporting institutions as we build back better.
