Rugby Victoria Club Reboot Initiative

by Rugby Vic Media

Rugby Victoria is pleased to announce the 'Club Reboot Initiative', a four part program designed to assist clubs and our Rugby families that have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic get back out on the field playing the game we love.

Rugby Victoria Welfare Fund

The Rugby Victoria Welfare Fund was created to improve the wellbeing and welfare of Rugby players and their families who have been financially impacted by the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Through the Australian Sports Foundation, Rugby Victoria aims to raise funds to support players and families in need as they transition back to participating in Rugby, this July.

Donations will have a significant impact on the lives of those affected and will provide financial support directly to families in need.


Community Sport Sector Short-Term Survival Package

The $40 million Community Sport Sector Short-term Survival Package provides grants to support the operational viability of community sport and active recreation organisations impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

This initiative is part of the Victorian Government’s new Experience Economy Survival Package providing urgent support to help a range of key attractions, organisations and associations ride out the economic impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and help them reboot, rebound and recover.

Grants of $1,000 are available for individual clubs.


Rugby Victoria Team Fee Reductions

Due to Government restrictions, the 2020 Rugby Victoria community Rugby season may be shortened from 14 rounds to 12 rounds. Rugby Victoria will reduce its team fees commensurate to the length of the season.

Partner Benefits Program

Rugby Victoria and the Melbourne Rebels’ partners have come together to develop a support package to re-boot clubs following the COVID-19 pandemic.

Club must demonstrate compliance with key RV measures to unlock over $1,000 value from our valued partners.
