Join the RFU's Community Club 'Health of the Game' Consultation Roadshow 2018

During April and May this year we will be embarking on a community club consultation roadshow around the country, speaking to club committee members, international ticket officers, and members of constituent body executive committees / boards. The roadshow, which will visit twelve different venues across England, will provide clubs with the opportunity to
consider the latest National Rugby Survey results, discuss the health of the community game, and review proposals as to how international tickets may be allocated to clubs in the future based on the amount of rugby being played.

The format of the each event will be as follows (please note tea, coffee & sandwiches will be provided):


Arrival and opportunity to view host venue's RugbyTurf AGP (where applicable)




Headline overview of National Rugby Survey


Input from attendees on context of the next National Rugby Survey


'The Health of the Community Game' - how do we measure it?


'Consultation on allocation of international tickets to clubs and Geographic CBs' proposals and discussion of options


Final remarks
