Thank you for your interest in partnering with Old Wesley Rugby Football Club.
Things are a little different at Old Wesley at the moment and our matches are currently taking place behind closed doors. However, we do hope things will be changing and we will once again be able to offer a warm, socially distanced, welcome to members and supporters in time to come.
Matchdays in Donnybrook are a unique experience; no other Club can boast the same unrivalled facilities and city centre location in the heart of Donnybook. In fact, it is on a matchday that our sponsors get a real feel for what the club is all about – from 6 years of age all the way to 86 years of age supporters at Old Wesley are welcoming and enthusiastic about their rugby.
Social distancing means that we are currently limited in the packages we can offer but we are sure that we will be able to offer some fantastic ideas to share your company’s business offerings with our members and visitors to Old Wesley. So whether you are looking for hospitality options or want to offer support to one of Ireland’s oldest and most respected rugby football teams, please register your interest here and we will be in touch.
Some background and what we are about:
Senior Rugby 2018/2019 was a record breaking year for Old Wesley – in time the season of 2018/19 will be viewed as one of if not the most successful season in the club’s long history. When other clubs are struggling to field teams, we are in rude health with all teams from 1st XV through to our 5th XV and including our under 20’s have had hugely successful seasons collecting 6 pennants along the way. On top of all that we had superb crowds piling into Donnybrook for every home game.
Season 2019/20 will be long remembered for many reasons, unfortunately more so for the effects of Covid on the rugby calendar. However, as a club we will look back at another excellent season on the field of play, with all teams competing extremely well in their respective leagues. The highlight had to be a fantastic unbeaten 14 from 14 by our mighty 3rd XV in Metro 2 beating many J1 sides along the way.
2020/2021 is shaping up to be just as exciting and we had hope that you and your business will be a part of the action!
Mini & Youth Rugby
Our aim is to provide a safe, non-competitive, enjoyable environment through activities which ensure progressive skill development for all participants in line with the IRFU Long Term Development (LTPD) pathway, Child Welfare Policy and Traditions of Rugby Union. You can visit www.irishrugby.ie to view these policies to which Old Wesley RFC adhere to. All our Coaches and Volunteers are Garda Vetted and have age appropriate accreditation of coaching skills.
As part of our 3-year Strategic plan, which was developed at the end of last season, we made a number of changes to the structure of Mini and Youth based around four objectives:
- Rugby Management of the Mini/Youths Section
- Development of OWRFC Rugby Pathway
- Growing the Membership
- Developing and Sustaining the Internal Coaching & Management Structure
Every Rugby Club in the country has its share of trophies and history – we truly are the envy of many of our rivals and that is not surprising when you see the table above. This success and respect from our peers is the culmination of many years of hard graft on the part of so many of our volunteers, friends and fellow club members.
I thank you for taking the time to look at the options available in partnering with the Old Wesley RFC. Inside our 2020 Sponsorship Packages document, you will find some of the opportunities we have for you and your business in terms of game day and club exposure, networking events and community engagement opportunities – and you will also have a lot of fun along the way!
