NatWest and Six Nations Rugby announce sponsorship agreement

NatWest and Six Nations Rugby have announced a one-year sponsorship agreement that will see the 2018 Championship being named as the NatWest 6 Nations.

England head into the tournament as defending champions, having won back-to-back competitions.

Six Nations Rugby CEO, John Feehan, said: “We are delighted to be announcing NatWest as Title Sponsor of the NatWest 6 Nations and the extension of our relationship with RBS.”

“They have been excellent partners over the past 15 years and we know what an outstanding role they have played and will continue to play in the success of our Championship.

“I am sure it will be a wonderful event in 2018 with NatWest on board. They know how this great Championship works and there is no doubt that it is a very positive development for both us and for NatWest ahead of next season. We greatly look forward to it.”

Chief Marketing Officer at NatWest, David Wheldon, added: “We have been title sponsors of the Six Nations for the last 15 years and are delighted to be renewing our sponsorship for a further year under our customer facing NatWest brand.”

NatWest has a strong rugby heritage and for the last five years has supported more than 700 community rugby clubs across England and Wales via NatWest RugbyForce.
