Bristol businesses fight it out at Corporate Challenge rugby match

Issue date: 25 June 2013

UWE Bristol is holding an action-packed day of touch rugby on 28 June as part of Bristol's lead-up to being a host city for the Rugby League World Cup 2013.

Twelve of Bristol's leading organisations will battle it out in a bid to win the Bristol Corporate Challenge Cup 2013. Each team consists of male and female employees from these organisations.

The twelve teams competing will represent Airbus, Bristol City Council, Business West, Everyone Active, Hewlett-Packard, Lyons Davidson, Midas Construction, Osborne Clarke, Rolls-Royce, South Gloucestershire Council, the University of Bristol and UWE.

The event is in aid of the Bristol Rugby Foundation with 50% of team entry fees being donated to provide community tickets through the World Cup Day to Remember scheme.

UWE's Vice Chancellor Steven West will also take the opportunity to brief participating organisations on the progress of the 21,000 seat UWE Stadium and the UWE Master Plan.

Kim Chang, Senior Business Development Manager at UWE said, “The Rugby League World Cup 2013 is the next major sporting event in the UK's decade of sport after London 2012. The UWE Bristol Corporate Challenge Cup will not only be an action-packed day of touch rugby competition, but also a day for employees of some of UWE's key partner organisations to have some fun.”

Bristol is hosting the World Cup match on 30 October 2013 between the USA and Cook Islands.
