WHAT IS THE RFU BUYING GROUP?

The RFU Buying Group is a service to support RFU Clubs in significantly reducing their running costs and helping your club to access the best value services from a broad range of approved suppliers.

We are specialists in establishing buying-groups within the sports sector (including golf & tennis) to harness the collective purchasing power to leverage significant discounts across a wide range of goods and services that are used by rugby clubs.

Our aim is to help your club access high quality services at a reduced price, assisting the financial sustainability of our network of rugby clubs across England.

The RFU Buying Group is completely free and is another excellent benefit of the RFU.

HOW CAN THIS SERVICE BENEFIT MY CLUB?

We know that many rugby clubs are under significant financial pressure, our service looks at ways of easing some of your financial outgoings at no cost to yourself.

We have saved grassroots community sports clubs thousands of pounds through our buying group services.

Your club will be able to access our network of specialists, who will benchmark your core areas of expenditure against their negotiated rates from their network of approved suppliers and provide you details of savings the club could make.

Your club will also be able to access Contracts Manager, which is an easy to use online management tool designed to manage all your service and utility contracts.
