The Trophy Tour continues...

0 0

Just like the Olympic torch relay in the run up to every Olympic Games, the Webb Ellis Cup is travelling the world before the start of the Rugby World Cup in September this year.

 

In recognition of the growth of rugby in Germany, the Webb Ellis Cup visited a children’s rugby tournament at TSV Handschuhsheim Rugby Club, who play in the top league of German rugby, the Rugby-Bundesliga. Hosted by the club and the German Rugby Federation, Deutscher Rugby-Verband, the tournament saw children from the Heidelberg area show off their skills in front of the iconic trophy, also cheered on by their rugby role models.

Following the tournament, co-sponser, Land Rover continued its commitment to take the Webb Ellis Cup to places it has never been before.

Christian Uhrig, Marketing Manager of Jaguar Land Rover Germany talks about how grassroots is the key to growth: "As a supporter of all levels of the game, from the grassroots to the elite, Land Rover is proudly celebrating rugby across a mix of markets. It is important for Land Rover to showcase the Webb Ellis Cup in countries such as Germany, which are developing on the international rugby stage, to continue to build excitement for the sport and Rugby World Cup 2015.”

"The Trophy Tour has allowed us to bring rugby to new audiences whilst also inspiring the children of Heidelberg, where there is a fierce passion for rugby, with the opportunity of seeing the coveted trophy. Rugby thrives on grassroots activity such as this and it’s these players at the heart of the game that Land Rover’s ‘We Deal In Real’ campaign is aiming to celebrate."

Having visited countries such as Japan, Australia, Fiji, Madagascar, South Africa, Argentina, Uruguay, USA, UAE, China, Italy, Romania and Canada, the last stop of the Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour will see the Webb Ellis Cup visit France in May before embarking on a 100 day journey around the UK and Ireland in the build-up to the start of the tournament.
