NOTTINGHAM RUGBY PARTNER CLUB PROGRAMME
SUPPORT the Green and Whites
and cash in.
As part of Nottingham Rugby's
new Partnership Scheme, affiliate clubs from across the East
Midlands can sell match tickets to members for a reduced price and
earn commission for each sale.
Local clubs that team up with the Green and Whites will also get
exclusive access to coach development, professional player support
and customised holiday camps.
Partner club members can purchase junior (under-16)
tickets for £1 with adults tickets priced at £10 with £2 of that
going back to their club.
All you need to do to cash in is quote the name of the
club that you are a member of when buying your ticket.
Nottingham first team and community manager Steve Smith is
thrilled to forge formal links with the grass-roots game.
"The Partnership Scheme has been established to support
sustainable relationships in which we are able to provide support
to local clubs in a reciprocal arrangement" Smith said.
"We will be dedicating resources to those clubs who come on
board as partners by taking the game to them in return for their
on-going support with the promotion of the Green and White's home
"Relationships with local clubs, schools and organisations are
treasured because they are the ones who proactively help us market
at a grass-roots level and it is something that we are keen to
develop further moving forward. It's also great from my
personal point of view to be working with some of the schools and
clubs again that I worked with when at the RFU six or so years
"Through player appearances, coach development, hosting holiday
camps, giving clubs access to a cash-back scheme will really help
local clubs and be invaluable exposure for us."
Long Eaton, West Bridgford, Burton, Nottingham Casuals,
Ashfield, Melbourne, Mellish, Burton, Rolls Royce and
Paviors are amongst the clubs that have already come on
board to work in tandem with the Green and Whites.
From grass-roots development to junior and senior teams, the
benefits of Nottingham's Partnership Programme can be tailored to
every level of the game.
Schools also have access to the scheme, with Chellaston Academy
in Derby and Trent College the first to sign up.
Smith, who has extensive experience with rugby development
having worked for the RFU and in the school system across Notts,
Lincs and Derbyshire, believes Nottingham Rugby can help make a
So much so that Burton, where he is head coach, was the first
club to commit to the fledgling programme.
"Having worked with Nottinghamshire clubs in my previous job as
RFU development officer I know what helps make clubs work well and
I can see how we as a professional club can give back to the
community game and how, vice versa, they can help us move forward,"
