Grassroots to Greatness

Without them, we wouldn’t have seen so many greats produce so many iconic moments at the stadium we’re proud to sponsor. Which is why we’re passionate about preserving grassroots rugby now and for the future.

And from one community to another, we believe the answer is to stand together.

Helping Grassroots Grow

Over the coming months, we'll be working with our partners at the Welsh Rugby Union to find a club whose pitch is in real need of repair. We’ll then breathe new life into this old ground, making it somewhere the community and their young players can carry on thriving.

But we need your help to do it.

We’re asking local clubs up and down the country to come together, and each donate a part of their pitch which we’ll then use to help restore the pitch of a club in need to help create what we believe will be The Greatest Pitch in Wales.

All grounds have a great story, and by joining us, The Greatest Pitch will represent them all, using them as a foundation to show just how much grassroots rugby matters, and leave a legacy to inspire generations to come. And who knows, maybe we’ll be seeing them at Principality Stadium soon.
