RBS is proud to be principal partner of Scottish Rugby, supporting the game in Scotland at all levels.
RBS is here for rugby from grassroots to the Scotland international teams and is committed to assisting and promoting the sport in a variety of meaningful ways.
We support club rugby by sponsoring the domestic league and cup competitions and by running the annual RBS RugbyForce initiative which has helped hundreds of clubs to open their doors to the local community, improve facilities and become more sustainable. Our RBS Rugby Reps programme has twinned all 175 domestic league clubs with their local RBS branches, where they receive support to promote matches and club events.
Our partnership with Scottish Rugby also gives us the opportunity to reward RBS customers with exclusive “money can’t buy” prizes. The RBS Rugby Rewards programme has seen hundreds of customers win match tickets and passes to the RBS Clubhouse on Scotland match-days, as well as the chance to watch the team train and meet them for autographs and photos.

G4S UK is the principal sponsor of Scottish Rugby's Street Rugby initiative with a three-year six-figure investment. This community programme, which received cross party commendation at the Scottish Parliament, aims to increase participation in rugby and reduce anti-social behaviour and crime in targeted areas by engaging 4,500 disengaged and disadvantaged teens and young adults from across Scotland annually.
Both G4S and Scottish Rugby firmly believe that sport can play a powerful role in being the catalyst to improving the quality of life for young people in communities across Scotland. Rugby can offer youngsters potentially life-changing opportunities to enhance their education and skills; improve their confidence, health and wellbeing; develop respect for themselves and others; and build stronger communities.
