The Rugby Football Union (RFU) has announced Tyrrells as title partner for the new women’s domestic competition, with the official name of the competition now the ‘Tyrrells Premier 15s’.

Tyrrells Premier 15s will kick off on 16th September, with 10 teams competing to take home the inaugural title.

The three-year partnership sees Tyrrells investing significantly alongside the multi-million-pound commitment from the RFU into the Tyrrells Premier 15s. This investment is expected to improve standards of the women’s game, as well as increase the talent pool available for selection for England in the future.

Clubs involved in the competition will benefit directly over the next three years from the RFU’s £2.4m investment. Each club will be required to deliver against agreed minimum standards and provide high-quality coaching, facilities, training environments and community engagement plans.

The competition will operate in a league format with home and away fixtures confirmed today. The top four teams will progress to semi-finals played over two legs, culminating in a final on the 29th April.

The new partnership also sees Tyrrells become the official crisps of England Rugby, benefitting from a range of partnership rights, and an exclusive supplier to Twickenham Stadium.
