• Supporting Welsh rugby

  • SWALEC are passionate about supporting Welsh Rugby

    Here at SWALEC we're passionate about supporting Welsh rugby from the local park to the Millennium Stadium. That's why we are National Community Partner of the WRU and title sponsor of the SWALEC Cup, Plate and Bowl Competitions.
    Pontypridd won 34 - 13 over Neath in the 2013 SWALEC Cup Final, marking Ponty's fifth SWALEC Cup title. They weren't the only winners on the day with Heol y Cyw edging out Rhydyfelin 20-19 in the SWALEC Plate final, and Wattstown beat Fishguard and Goodwick 27-17 in the SWALEC Bowl final.

    SWALEC Leagues

    The SWALEC Leagues are the lifeblood of the game in Wales with more than 300 teams battling it out across the country each season.

    The average season sees the National Leagues delivering over 6,500 fixtures, providing a competitive structure for Wales' committed amateur players.

    SWALEC works with the WRU to help showcase the League winning clubs and would like to congratulate all the players, coaches and volunteers for their hard work throughout the season.

    Proud to be Ryan's number one supporter

    Ryan was an obvious choice for SWALEC as brand ambassador as both brand and player shared the same values of supporting grassroots club rugby and developing the next generation of rugby stars. His performance and leadership qualities when he captained Wales to their second Grand Slam victory in three years, earned rave reviews from both the Welsh media and public.

    Following three successful years of working with Wales’ grassroots clubs, the WRU and Ryan, SWALEC announced an extension to its partnership, which is testament to the strong relationship established between the two organisations. The four year agreement sees SWALEC invest significantly to support community rugby in Wales and continue as the National Leagues and Cup Sponsor.

    Ryan has been instrumental in helping SWALEC deliver our sponsorship supporting community rugby through numerous initiatives across the country, whether it’s delivering a coaching session at Tonna RFC, visiting competition winners at the Millennium Stadium or providing coaching material to Welsh clubs, Ryan has delivered in his own personable, enthusiastic way, adding value to the experiences of rugby supporters.

    We look forward to continuing to work with Ryan in the future and everyone at SWALEC would like to congratulate Ryan on being awarded his testimonial year and thank him for helping to make rugby in Wales that little bit better!
