Rugby Europe (formally FIRA-AER), the governing body responsible for the promotion, development, organisation and administration of rugby in Europe, has set out their vision in a long-term commercial and communication strategy designed to meet the expectations of all the European Rugby Union’s, responding to their needs and the challenges of tomorrow’s rugby.

 

Octavian Morariu, president of Rugby Europe and IOC Member discusses what those challenges are:

 

“Post Rugby World Cup and pre Rio Olympics, is an exciting time for the sport and we need to capitalise on these opportunities. We have an exciting vision and strategy in place that will increase the visibility and understanding of the opportunities in rugby across Europe, as well as develop the standard of rugby played in Europe and internationally.”

 

“The 6 Nations Tournament is coming under scrutiny because of results of tier 2 clubs such as Romania and Georgia, firstly it’s a testament to these countries and their successes should be celebrated as the reality is that they don’t have the opportunity to play in competitions with the 6 Nation countries, arguably making their path to success a longer or tougher one.”

 

“Rugby Europe is in full support of the 6 Nations tournament, it has been and will remain a fantastic engine for European rugby.  But the debate is a good one as it shines a spot light on the growing need for tangible competitive integration outside of this structure”

 

“Rugby Europe will work alongside World Rugby and all 48 Rugby European Members, to develop the tournament structure across 2nd and 3rd tier nations. The Rugby Europe Championship, including Georgia, Romania, Germany, Portugal, Spain and Russia is a Tournament growing in stature however these Countries need the opportunity for increased integrated competition with the 6 Nations Countries to assist their development into competitive Nations. We believe that it is the joint objective of the European rugby community to build a detailed strategy that means the 6 Nations Championships is not the only answer for International rugby in Europe, both on and off the field.  It is a joint vision to shape the success of competitive rugby on a pan European level.”
