The Rugby Partnership is a commercially driven sports management company specialising in elite rugby players. With a decade of experience in top-level sports sponsorship, player management and sports PR, we are perfectly placed to maximise the earning potential of our clients.
The Rugby Partnership is founded on integrity. We are committed to building strong long-term relationships to ensure our clients get the most from their playing career.
The Rugby Partnership is the brainchild of Gordon Hood who wanted to better connect the sport and business worlds. A passionate rugby player (and Scotsman!) his love of the game has brought him fantastic rugby experiences all over the world.
A law graduate from Aberdeen University, he worked in sport sponsorship for several years before establishing himself in player management. This combination of strong rugby knowledge and extensive commercial contacts are a potent mix and enable a well-rounded partnership approach.
We are delighted to manage players in both Scotland and England, including several international players, most of whom we have had as clients from the very beginning of their careers. There is nothing we enjoy more than helping a client sign their first professional contact or watch them gain their first international cap.
