Pitch Contractor Partnerships Expression of Interest

To further enhance the support we are able to offer our members, Rugby Groundsmen Connected is looking to build new relationships with pitch maintenance contractors throughout the country.

This ‘Pitch Contractor Partnerships’ or ‘PCP’ initiative will enable us to signpost our members to high quality and reliable companies that can help with their pitch maintenance needs. We’ll also be able to ensure they are competitively priced and deliver excellent value for money.

To submit an ‘Expression of Interest’ to become a PCP, please fill out the form and associated documentation below and email to groundsmenconnected@rfu.com.

Much more information including the submission deadline is included in the paperwork.

The RFU is developing new partnerships with pitch maintenance contractors throughout the country. These will become RFU Pitch Contractor Partnerships. The RFU wants to be able to signpost all clubs to local contractors, to help them to deliver the recommendations received from Keith Kent or through Rugby Groundsmen Connected.
