Volkswagen has been sponsors of Leinster Rugby for the past four seasons and has extended that commitment to incorporate the Leinster Rugby Referees.

Paul Burke, Operations Director for Volkswagen Group Ireland: “We are delighted to support Leinster Referees Association. At Volkswagen we are already strong supporters of Leinster Rugby and this partnership will further our involvement and enhance the partnership for both organisations.”

From humble beginnings in 1902 the Association is now in its 111th season. Total membership has grown to approximately 350, including administrative Committee members, Assessors and approximately 250 active members. Throughout the season Association members provide officials to in excess of 4,200 games throughout the province at all levels including Youths, Schools, Junior and Senior adult Rugby.

Peter Donnelly, President of Leinster Rugby Referees: “As with all sports - amateur and professional - sponsorship remains a vital component of our survival. The LRR membership is entirely voluntary and operates very much on the principles of amateurism. Members give of the services voluntarily throughout the season. The Association prides itself by the uniformity of its member dress code and sponsorship is vital to member adherence.”
