Funding and Sponsorship

The European Grand Old Rugby Executive Committees are all Volunteers and as yet, there is no specific Sponsorship for our Oldies Rugby, or Festivals, although we are always looking for a generous Rugby benefactor ….or two!

All aspects of Sponsorship are available, from major Corporate Sponsorship, smaller amounts of Sponsorship – with a Financial contribution, Product or Services in kind, Festival Brochure and Pitchside Advertising, being amongst the options.

Contact us by E–mail –  gro.ybgurdlodnargnaeporuenull@ofni 

If EGOR arrange a deal for Festival Balls, Playing Kit etc….then that Company shall be an Official Festival Supplier.

We issue a Newsletter on a regular basis and Advertising or Sponsorship can also be agreed.  Sponsor Oldies Rugby……and you will definitely get a Game – if you so wish !!   Over the years, Rugby Oldies have supported many Charities, both Local and National, usually with the emphasis on Youth / Children’s Rugbyand Rugby Charities We endeavour, where possible to make our Festivals eco – friendly.

Each Festival, whether European or Local, must strive to generate enough in Sponsorship and Fund Raising to keep the costs to the Oldies Participants as low as possible.  A Host Rugby Club should not find itself running a Festival at a loss !

Regular Club Sponsors may also wish to be involved in your G O Event….give them the option.  Seek new Sponsors…….check with your Local City / Town Council for appropriate Grants and meet up with their Events Manager who can advise.  The Local Sports Council may also be able to offer a Grant. Services  “ In Kind ” may also be available from your local Municipal Authority.  Other Fund Raisers can be

  • Bar – B – Q’s and Discos
  • Car Boot Sales
  • Car Wash at local Games
  • G O Player Sponsorship
  • Festival Brochure       Sell Advertising to cover Printing Costs
  • Sell Franchises at the Festival to local Businesses to take a Stall
  • Etc….

Make sure your Players pay their Subs to the Club and set up Standing Orders etc to enable them to pay in a little amount monthly, to offset Tour Funds.

 Participate in other Festivals and enjoy your Oldies Rugby !!
