Friends of Middlesex Rugby
Become a Friend of Middlesex Rugby and support sport in Middlesex. Built on the ethos of Believe & Belong, our new Friends scheme aims to raise funds to support grassroots rugby across the county and to help our County representative squads to develop their skills further through quality player development programmes.
BELIEVE in building a better future for the game and for young sports people
BELONG to an exclusive group which helps young people achieve their sporting dreams and
yields substantial benefits for members through supporting sport
Middlesex Rugby is part funded by the RFU and by its member clubs, and as an official constituent body of the RFU we are a not-for-profit organisation. Every year we have to dip into our capital reserves to fund initiatives which help sustain our clubs by bringing new players to the game, offering more inclusive rugby in all its formats across the County through competitions, tournaments and ‘pitch up and play’ sessions and through the recruitment and development of referees, coaches and volunteers.
Together with our partners at Middlesex County Cricket Club, we have put together a comprehensive range of privileges for Friends of Middlesex Rugby to help them support sport in Middlesex, including the right to apply for International rugby tickets and a substantial discount on MCCC membership.
All we ask in return is that you become a Friend and help us sustain rugby across the county.
