Gilbert are proud to be the Official Ball of Premiership Rugby – a partnership that stretches back over 25 years.
The preferred choice of the world’s leading nations, Gilbert has been the official ball at the Rugby World Cup for the last seven consecutive tournaments and will be used exclusively at Rugby World Cup 2021 in New Zealand and France 2023. Gilbert’s Sirius match ball will also feature in both Gallagher Premiership Rugby and the Premiership Rugby Cup.
Gilbert has always been a UK, family owned, brand since it first began. William Gilbert supplied balls to Rugby School back in 1823, when legend has it William Webb Ellis first picked up the ball and ran with it on the Close at the School, creating the game we all know and love.
Gilbert’s constant research and development helps the brand maintain its position as the number one choice in Europe and of the major rugby nations. The extensive Gilbert product range is built on Trust, Innovation and Performance and includes market leading rugby balls, boots, clothing, body armour and equipment – all built specifically for rugby.
If your club would like to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Premiership Rugby and the Barbarians, then please get in touch with the team at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss a partnership.
