Sponsorship Opportunities

Dundee High Rugby Club was founded in 1880 and throughout our proud history we have helped to produce more than our fair share of players who have attained representative honours – including 12 full Scottish internationalists, mostly in the last 30 years.

In recent years we have maintained our position at the top of Scottish club rugby and in 2011-2012 completed the most successful season in our long history by finishing runners-up in the RBS Premier 1, qualifying for the British and Irish Cup and reaching the semi-final stage of the Scottish Cup.

The Club’s junior section, Dundee Eagles, is thriving and offers a quality rugby environment to over 150 children of all ages and from all parts of the City of Dundee.

In order to sustain and build on these achievements, the Club works very hard on fundraising in a variety of ways. All sponsorship money raised directly supports the playing, coaching and administration costs of running three senior and at least five junior sides, including:

Coaching costs
Full time development officer and assistant(s)
Travel and kit costs for our Junior sides
Gym costs for players
Player kit
Player support – particularly students
Travel costs for players living out with Dundee
Player recruitment
Medical and Physiotherapy costs

Below is a list of sponsorship opportunities
