Take centre stage at the season launch of the LV= Cup this season
How do you fancy taking centre stage at the season launch of the LV= Cup, proudly showing your club colours amongst supporters from teams across the competition? Well now is your chance!
Ahead of the new season, LV= are offering supporters from each of the 16 teams taking part in the cross-border Cup competition the chance to represent their club at the launch on November 5. Taking place at Sandy Park, the home of Exeter Chiefs and 2012/13 LV= Breakthrough Player Jack Nowell, the season launch sees players from across the competition gather together to preview the LV= Cup.
Joined by LV= Cup Ambassador and former England and British & Irish Lions legend Lewis Moody, the attending fans will take part in on-pitch photography, with the lucky 16 winners also joining the players on the Sandy Park turf. With the photography used to promote the LV= Cup this season, your face could become front page news!
In addition, each winning supporter will receive a new home jersey from their respective clubs to wear on the day. Lunch and transport will be provided, and the day will finish with a skills session involving the LV= Cup players. So bring your boots!
If you fancy representing your club at the 2013/14 LV= Cup season launch, simply email LVsupporter@rfu.com explaining in no more than 150 words why you should attend on behalf of your club. Perhaps you've been a season ticket holder for over ten years? Are you the next generation of young rugby talent? Or do you take your family to support your team every week, rain or shine? If you are a dedicated fan and fancy donning your club colours, let us know!
Entries close on Friday, October 18. The winners will be contacted on Tuesday October 22 and must be available to travel to Sandy Park, Exeter, on Tuesday November 5. One supporter will be selected per club.
