2019-20 Business Planning Communication

I am writing to inform you of business planning updates for the 2019-20 season.

As you may be aware, the RFU is currently dealing with a challenging financial period and is having to make some reductions in investment across the professional game, in general overheads/cost of sales, and in community rugby. While the community game investment for 2019/20 remains significant at close to £30m, the Community Game Board (CGB) has had to make some difficult decisions about where to invest.

To read the letter for a full overview of proposed changes, and how these may affect your CB or club, please click here

Best regards, 
Rob Briers – Chairman of Community Game Board
Steve Grainger – Rugby Development Director
