Basepoint Bromsgrove sponsor Bromsgrove Rugby Football Club

Bromsgrove

We are proud to announce we will be the latest sponsor of Bromsgrove Rugby Football Club during the 2016/2017 season.

 

 

Following a meeting at the Corn Exchange on the 28th September 1872 the club was formed; the first real game though was played on the 22nd November 1873 against Kidderminster on the Recreation Ground in front of a large crowd. Kick Off was at 3:00pm and despite strenuous efforts by both sides, time was called at 4:50pm neither side having scored a goal.

The club has provided rugby for thousands of players over the years and continues to do so, fielding 5 teams each Saturday, plus the Crusaders, their renowned veterans team, Colts, Under 17s and Mini & Junior teams from the ages of 8 to 16 on Sundays. They are also famed for their summer marquee events; the June Summer Ball and the Bromsgrove Beer and Cider Festival that runs at end June. Last year the Festival boasted more than 120 real ales, along with 50 ciders and perries. Last years Festival saw over 2800 visitors and allegedly ran dry.

We look forward to our Partnership with Bromsgrove Rugby Football Club and wish everyone involved a successful Season.
