The Rugby Players’ Association (RPA) has today been announced as the Official Supplier of Match Day Talent for England Rugby Hospitality™, the Rugby Football Union’s (RFU) new hospitality offering.

With the current redevelopment of the East Stand, Twickenham is further cementing its reputation as a world class sports hospitality venue. This new agreement will ensure fans’ match-day experience will be enhanced with the opportunity to mix with current and former rugby stars.

Twickenham now offers seven outstanding facilities, each within its own unique design and dining experience, inspired by the game and the stadium’s rich heritage. Fans will be able to soak up a unique match atmosphere before taking their premium seats.

RPA Group CEO Damian Hopley said: “Having worked closely with the RFU on their first class hospitality programme for the last decade, this new agreement will provide excellent opportunities for our members to work with England Rugby Hospitality and deliver unparalleled match day experiences for the fans.”

Steve Brown, RFU, chief executive, said: “Offering our clients the opportunity to rub shoulders with rugby legends will only enhance the world class hospitality experience on offer at Twickenham Stadium. We are delighted to collaborate with the RPA, who represent a breadth of high calibre current and former players, and look forward to the partnership, starting with the Quilter International Series this autumn.”

Official hospitality packages, only available via England Rugby Hospitality and long-standing partner Keith Prowse within the east stand, are now on-sale for the Quilter International Series in November including matches against New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and Japan.
