To reach a broader target audience, around the values that make rugby
In 1823, William Webb Ellis, started playing quite an oddball sport at his school: the “Rugby School”. 200 years down the line, all the great rugby nations dream of raising the World Cup that bears his name high over head.
Some of the top contenders include New Zealand, South Africa (current reigning champions), England, Ireland and, of course, France.
With more than 1,600 clubs and around 195,000 card-carrying members in the French Rugby Federation, this sport has become one of the major sports in France, enjoying a reach and image every bit as enviable as those of football, tennis or even basketball.
What’s more, rugby stands out from any other sport for the positive image it conveys.
To wit, the French team and its head coach Fabien Galthié enjoy a positive image with 83% of the French people (Odoxa poll, March 2021), with values such as team spirit, respect, solidarity, satisfaction from hard work, fearlessness and performance, all in an inviting and friendly atmosphere. With Rugby World Cup France 2023, you will enjoy the certainty of inviting your business partners to an appealing event and connecting your brand image with meaningful values.
