Royal Bank RugbyForce is a grassroots initiative run by Royal Bank of Scotland in association with Scottish Rugby. The programme is designed to help clubs up and down the country to attract new members and become stronger and more sustainable for the future.

For 2018, Royal Bank RugbyForce  ‘Love your Club’ campaign is offering ten lucky clubs across the nation the opportunity to receive up to £1000 of support plus a crowd-pulling visit from Scotland’s star players. Ahead of the new 2018/19 season, they will be on hand during the RugbyForce weekend in August to roll up their sleeves and get involved with anything your club needs.

A further 8 clubs can secure £1000 of support, with all other clubs being in with the chance of being awarded £250. All qualifying clubs will receive support packs to hold your own Royal Bank RugbyForce weekend on the 11th and 12th of August.

The grant application process can be completed using this handy online form which will take approximately 10-15 minutes.
