The resulting impact caused by the COVID-19 pandemic on rugby programming, including the indefinite suspension of sanctioned rugby activities across Canada, has brought about unprecedented financial and administrative constraints at all levels of the sport. The Rugby Ontario Supporter Club is a new membership category and crowdfunding initiative for rugby participants and enthusiasts to #KeepRugbyAlive and support the work of an organization solely devoted to facilitating and administering rugby across Ontario.
Rugby Ontario’s vision is to establish a stronger identity for the sport by promoting rugby’s core values and by fostering a culture of inclusiveness and excellence on and off the field of play. The Supporter Club is an opportunity for active community members and those with a connection to rugby to make a financial contribution towards supporting this vision and the future of rugby in Ontario. A club for all, the Rugby Ontario Supporter Club offers two (2) membership options at different price points, each extending unique benefits and incentives, including a Supporter Club T-shirt for all members, as well as a kickback to an Ontario Club (eligible membership only).
