Ruck Science is excited to welcome Radford University Men’s Rugby Club into our sponsorship program. Radford RFC is now eligible to receive funding as part of our ever-growing sponsorship program which, we hope, will eventually support every amateur rugby club in the USA.
Unlike more traditional sponsorship partnerships, Radford RFC doesn’t have to do very much at all to secure their funding. They don’t even need to put the Ruck Science logo on their shirts! This is good news as, like most rugby clubs, Radford RFC doesn’t have the time or the manpower to dedicate to full-time fundraising. However, funding is crucial for their ongoing success and that’s where the Ruck Science sponsorship program aims to help.
To secure their funding, all Radford RFC needs to do is use the code RADFORDRFC when purchasing any Ruck Science products through our website. In return, the club will receive 10% of all orders placed. It really is that easy!
If you want to support Radford University Rugby Club, you can get started with three easy steps!
In the mid 1980’s, Virginia’s New River Valley assembled a men’s club rugby team. The team was predominantly college students at Radford University. This team later became Radford Rugby and was welcomed by Radford University. Since 1988, rugby has become an integral part to the university’s club sports programs.
In 1993, the 1st annual Kevin Coffee Tournament was created for a fallen teammate. The development of this tournament led to Radford’s first tournament win in 1998. This tournament win set the foundation for a fruitful rugby program. Success continued for the university and its rugby program, with Mid Atlantic Championships in 2000, 2003, 2008, along with DII VA state championships in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2008, 2011 and 2012.
During these years the rugby program put together teams that went on to win two DII National Titles in 2003 and 2008. In 2016 The Men’s Rugby Alumni Association at Radford University was formed (MRAARU).
This association, in conjunction with past, present, and future rugby players and alumni, will help develop the ability to compete nationally, develop student leaders, achieve academic success, provide network opportunities for students, and proudly represent Radford University in a positive sportsmanlike image.
