Rugby Dinners & Pre-Game Receptions:

Throughout the year, in conjunction with major calendared rugby events in the USA or as stand alone events, Rugby Partners, Inc. hosts numerous dinners and pre-game receptions focused entirely on four main goals.  Namely to:

  • – Create the best entertainment experiences possible for you and your clients, associates and employees;
  • – Highlight the tenets of Rugby as a team sport and their benefits in developing youth to be the best they can be;
  • – Promote and manifest the incredible business opportunities that are emerging from the rise of Rugby in the United States;
  • – Give back to the game by supporting our three main rugby charity partners.


Our impressive and far-reaching network of past and present International Rugby Legends, be they players, captains or coaches, coupled with our in-house talent and extensive relationships with top quality vendors,  gives us the edge in delivering event experiences that are both powerful and memorable as well as rewarding on many levels.
