Crowdfund rugby

Full support for rugby clubs affected by the pandemic

Together we're making a difference at rugby clubs through the crowd

Rugby clubs of all sizes are turning to crowdfunding during the pandemic, working with supporters on a range of fundraising campaigns to generate essential revenue and meaningful fan engagement. 

They are all shining a spotlight on the wide range of issues facing clubs right now and the huge impact they have in our communities. 

Club officials are working tirelessly behind the scenes to keep clubs afloat, and with fans and partners to keep vital sponsorships active. 

We have waived all of our platform and transaction fees, meaning you keep every penny of what you raise. There are no hidden charges.

And we have a pot of almost £3 million in +Extra Funding from Sport England to pledge up to £10,000 on grassroots rugby campaigns during the pandemic.

Get in touch for a chat with our dedicated sports team if you want to finds out more.
