Become a mascot at Rugby World Cup Japan thanks to Land Rover

18th February 2019

To celebrate grassroots rugby, Cardiff Blues' principal partner Land Rover are inviting two junior clubs to take part in a youth touch rugby festival - and the chance to become a mascot at Rugby World Cup 2019 (TM) in Japan is up for grabs!

The exciting festival will take place at Farleigh House on Saturday, March 30, with under-11s and under-12s teams from Cardiff Blues, Bath Rugby and Glasgow Warriors going head-to-head.

As part of the festival, Land Rover will be offering one lucky participant from each Land Rover affiliated club to become a mascot at Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan. The winning individual must represent Land Rover’s rugby values and will be selected by a panel of Land Rover ambassadors, coaches and club representatives. 

All under-11 teams within the Cardiff Blues region are invited to enter by submitting a video on Twitter, detailing why they should be considered. Videos must be submitted by tagging both @Cardiff_Blues and @LandRoverRugby. 

The participating team for the under-12’s tournament will be selected from the quarter-finalists of the Cardiff Blues Land Rover Cup and Plate competitions, who will also be asked to enter a video.

All entries must be submitted by Sunday, March 3, with the winning teams selected by a panel of Cardiff Blues players and announced across our social media channels.
