With two wins out of two for England in the RBS 6 Nations, rugby fever is beginning to grip the nation. The Rugby Players' Association is offering the chance for rugby fans to rub shoulders with players, coaches and legends of the game as they launch ticket sales for the RPA Players' Awards taking place on May13 at London's Battersea Evolution.
A highlight of the domestic rugby union calendar, the RPA Players' Awards are the only awards voted for by the players themselves and with Rugby World Cup 2015 fast approaching, this year's event will be bigger and better than ever.
Bringing together the biggest names in the sport to celebrate the achievements of the season and crown the 2015 Players' Player of the Year, guests will enjoy a glamorous Champagne Reception, three course dinner and complimentary bar. During the evening a grand auction and silent auction will offer guests experiences that money cannot buy.
The RPA is the representative body and collective voice of professional rugby players in England, offering its members Player Welfare and Representation services.
Damian Hopley, Group CEO of the RPA, said: “This is a landmark year for rugby in England and the RPA Players' Awards gives rugby supporters an opportunity to spend an evening with Premiership and international players and celebrate a unique evening dedicated to the sport.”
Proceeds generated from the event will be invested back into the RPA's official charity, Restart, with funds directed to players forced to retire through illness or injury.
