RFU converts CBRE extension

The Rugby Football Union has agreed a three-year extension to its partnership with real estate services company CBRE.

Having first partnered on the RFU’s All Schools programme in 2014, the new agreement sees CBRE continue as the official property advisors to England Rugby, and the principal partner of the programme – an initiative launched in 2012 which will take rugby into 750 state secondary schools by next year’s Rugby World Cup.

The All Schools programme aims to make school life happier and healthier by reducing anti-social behaviour, enhancing learning and increasing student self-esteem.

There have already been 675 schools enrolled in the programme, giving those students the opportunity to play rugby that otherwise they may not have received, with thousands of students also joining their local rugby clubs.
