About the awards
Calling all Welsh rugby club groundsman! Do you have the award-worthy skills we’re looking for? Are you out in the wind, rain, frost or snow tending to your team’s pitch, ensuring optimum conditions for rugby?
As part of our continued support for grassroots rugby, PGI Welsh Beef is launching its Groundsman of the Year Awards. Designed to spotlight the unsung heroes of our nation’s great sport, we’re giving one lucky individual the recognition they deserve with a Groundsman of the Year trophy and the chance to win £500 worth of outdoor clothing.
For many years, PGI Welsh Beef has been an avid supporter of rugby, connected through the benefits of our nation’s lush grass and landscape. Just as Welsh grass underpins the high-quality of our cattle, so too does it provide an equally integral role for our nation’s next rugby stars and we want to celebrate the individuals’ responsible for maintaining its habitat.
At PGI Welsh Beef we know the importance of good-quality grass. On the pitch, seasonal management is crucial to achieving a high-quality surface throughout the year and this requires a steadfast dedication. If you are this steadfast individual, or you want to nominate your team’s groundsman who always takes pride in the pitch for your club, get behind them and nominate today!
