Ricoh launch The Business of Rugby campaign

Global technology company Ricoh launches a new series in its successful The Business of Rugby campaign, delivered in partnership with Premiership Rugby. This year The Business of Rugby will focus on what it really takes for Premiership Rugby clubs to generate lasting success on and off the pitch, with exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the 12 clubs. A new report and video series made up of four chapters focusing on the four factors that Ricoh believe are essential to developing a winning strategy: people, process, technology and place, will be released throughout the 2018-19 Gallagher Premiership Rugby season. The aim is for each chapter to provide fascinating insights and behind-the-scenes access to the Premiership Rugby clubs.




Rugby Blindside also publishes a newsletter that focuses on ‘off the pitch’ news from grassroots rugby clubs in the UK.
