Over 15 pubs across the West Midlands have become part of the Wasps Affiliate Pub Scheme for the 2019/20 season.
Bringing communities together to make supporting Wasps easy, the scheme will see venues in Coventry, Nuneaton, Kenilworth, Leamington Spa, Warwick, Sutton Coldfield and Solihull receive customised beer mats and bar runners and be presented with an official Wasps Affiliate Pub plaque to mark their inclusion in the scheme.
Patrons will benefit too, with exclusive offers on tickets bought through their pub, and in some cases will be able to catch a coach from their local to Ricoh Arena on matchday. Pubs are also planning on screening Wasps away matches.
As well as supporting Wasps, patrons will be supporting their local pubs, who will receive cashback on ticket sales.
The 2019 Rugby World Cup is just around the corner, and these affiliated pubs have something up their sleeve to celebrate rugby's biggest event, with more news to follow.
Wasps Group Sales Manager Tom Eales said: "We’re really excited to launch the Affiliate Pub Scheme ahead of the upcoming season. It’s a great opportunity for Wasps to engage with a wider audience across the region.
"We will be working with some fantastic pubs and landlords to create excitement around Wasps whilst showcasing the pubs to our loyal fanbase."
