European Professional Club Rugby

Italian sportswear brand Kappa has agreed a deal to become the official technical apparel partner of the Champions Cup and Challenge Cup club rugby union competitions

European Professional Club Rugby (EPCR), the body that runs European club rugby’s leading competitions, is seeking a new marketing agency to develop a sponsorship platform that has, so far, yielded just two Official Partners and three Official Suppliers.

Dutch brewing company Heineken has been confirmed as the first of five planned main commercial partners for the new competitions run by the European Professional Club Rugby organisation, while sportswear company Canterbury of New Zealand has also agreed a deal.
