Perthshire Rugby's Involvement
Match Day Bar
We have been invited to boost our fundraising by hosting the bars on match day. We will host the bars for all 7000 attendees at the match using our Perth Beer Festival expertise but with a small range of can-based products for ease of service and speed.
Please volunteer to support our bar service & gain free entry!
All pre-registered bar volunteers will receive Scottish Rugby Match Day Accreditation to enable FREE OF CHARGE access to the arena (worth £25 based on grandstand price) with a chance to soak up the atmosphere & see some of the game around service requirements. If you are over 18, please email email@example.com to register your interest. We would be particularly grateful to our players and supporters with existing bar training to get involved. We hope to recruit c.60 volunteers to support this & raise as much money as possible for Perthshire Rugby. Thank you for your support! Shift start time would be approx 11.00am.

Rugby Activities to Support Event
Perthshire Rugby's Development Team are working with the Glasgow Warriors Community Team to develop a programme of activities in the build up to the match and on match day.
Current discussions for match day in particular are around an invitation only Veterans' 7s tournament and invitation only Mini Tournament featuring teams from across the region to the usual Scotstoun template with finalists competing at half-time. Section Heads will be advised of any requests for specific Perthshire Rugby age groups to be involved on the day and will forward to appropriate Team Managers with plenty of notice.
Thank you for supporting Perthshire Rugby. We hope you enjoy this fantastic event celebrating 150 years of rugby in Perth at our Club!
