Land Rover is proud to be an Official Sponsor of Rugby World Cup 2011 which will be taking place in New Zealand during September and October this year.
We are excited to be associated with a sport which shares so many of our core values - power, intelligence, versatility - all elements that are needed to create great competitive rugby and world class all-terrain vehicles. As the Official Vehicle of RWC 2011, Land Rover will be keeping the ball rolling by supplying support cars to the organisers, teams and officials of the Tournament.
Visiting fans from across the world will be given the opportunity to experience the Land Rover all-terrain simulator in Auckland throughout the duration of the Tournament.
The Rugby World Cup and host country New Zealand provides the perfect global showcase for Land Rover's vehicles. The Tournament will be attended by fans from around the globe and will be watched by a TV audience of over 4 billion in more than 200 countries.
OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE TOURNAMENT CONTINUES IN 2015
Land Rover's relationship with rugby will continue to Rugby World Cup 2015 where we will be a Worldwide Partner to the Tournament. RWC 2015 will be hosted by England and will provide a unique opportunity for Land Rover to showcase our vehicles in the country that the company and the sport were born in.
