Millions for grassroots rugby: RFU and Premiership Rugby deal to benefit the community game

Community rugby and the academies of professional rugby clubs will receive fresh investment following a new £200m+ agreement signed between the Rugby Football Union (RFU) and Premiership Rugby.

The pair have committed to a “multi-million pound community programme” as part of an eight-year revenue share deal.

Grassroots funding will be distributed on top of the revenues the RFU has already committed to the grassroots game. Last year the national governing bodyploughed £32.5m (US$42.7m, €38.9m) into community rugby.
