England rugby announce partnership with Simplyhealth


England Rugby has announced a new five-year partnership with Simplyhealth to become the trusted healthcare partner and official lead partner for the RugbySafe programme.

As an official partner of England Rugby, Simplyhealth will also receive match day branding rights at Twickenham Stadium, starting at the England v Wales match on Sunday.

Working together, England Rugby and Simplyhealth will explore how to utilise their joint knowledge base to develop and expand ‘RugbySafe’ and promote health and wellbeing in sport, as well as everyday life.

“As businesses, we have a shared heritage – since 1871, the England Rugby Rose has been a mark of quality, success and integrity,” said Romana Abdin CEO of Simplyhealth.

“Similarly, Simplyhealth has been helping people stay healthy since 1872. So we’re excited to be the trusted healthcare partner to England Rugby giving us the opportunity to support RFU in making rugby a safe game to play and providing a platform for us to influence health and wellbeing.”

Simon Kemp, RFU Medical Services Director, added: “Broadening the reach of the RugbySafe suite of products to reduce injury risk and promote health and wellbeing is a key strategic priority for the RFU. We look forward to working in partnership with Simplyhealth on this important area for rugby union.”

Simon Massie-Taylor, RFU Chief Commercial Officer, commented: “It’s great to announce this new partnership with Simplyhealth. We look forward to developing a long-term partnership building on both parties’ long and trusted heritage with their respected audiences.”
