Volvo and the Rugby Union
Be close to the action in 2017 as we proudly partner RUPA and the NSW Waratahs.
Toughness. Tenacity. Game on.
At Volvo the best results come from commitment, ongoing development, and sheer determination, and that’s no different when it comes to Rugby Union. That’s why Volvo is proud to support Australian Rugby Union and the NSW Waratahs.
Volvo has been proud partners of the NSW Waratahs since 2009, and we’ve seen them go from strength to strength, taking home their first Super Rugby title in 2014. This year, we’re also sponsors of the Volvo NSW High Performance Centre – the development centre programme for future NSW Waratahs stars. This year, the Waratahs are looking to build on their 2016 season performance, and with a strong, young squad things are certainly looking up for the team.
Volvo has been a proud partner of The Rugby Union Players’ Association (RUPA) since 2013. The partnership is a key way for Volvo to showcase its ‘human-centric’ philosophy by supporting Australian Rugby Union’s most important assets, the players.
Volvo is the “Players’ Choice” of motor vehicle, and demonstrates its commitment to Rugby as the presentation partner of the annual Volvo-RUPA Awards lunch; Australia’s most prestigious Rugby player-voted awards event. Volvo and RUPA also collaborate to present the People’s Choice Team of the Year, allowing fans to have their say on the country’s best performing players.
RUPA was formed as Rugby embraced professionalism in 1995 to represent Australia’s elite Rugby players.
