WOMENS RUGBY

Women’s rugby has never been so popular. Women’s rugby is the largest up and coming

women’s sport in the UK. With the England Women winning the Rugby World Cup in 2014,

the sport has seen a dramatic increase in coverage, sponsorship and professionalism in the

last few years.

Professional

rugby regularly in England

Positive sporting and female role models

Increased TV, print and online coverage,

of not only womens rugby, but all

women’s sport

High brand loyalty to Rugby Union

honours, with Sarah Hunter, England

“At the moment rugby is

growing hugely amongst

younger girls. After the

World Cup last year,

women’s rugby has massively

taken off. And I think after

this summers Olympics

with 7s being involved for

the first time, it will take off

again and grow even more.”
