SSE Rugby Energy

SSE, RFU National Community Partner

As the RFU’s Official Community Partner, SSE are fully committed to making English rugby clubs more sustainable in the long term. To deliver on this commitment, SSE is working to move all clubs on to the same buying cycle by 2015. This will see clubs strengthen their buying power as a collective and ultimately get a better deal on energy purchasing. Remember, despite every effort to provide clubs with the cheapest tariffs, energy prices are subject to change on a daily and sometimes hourly basis and SSE may not always be the most cost-effective contract available to every club.

Win £10,000 worth of mobile floodlights for your club!

Floodlights are essential for those midweek training sessions that happen up and down the country. They are also an expensive piece of kit for clubs to buy and run, so that’s why SSE are offering one lucky club the chance to get the latest in energy-efficient floodlighting with the Rhino VB9 ECO. 

To be in with a chance of winning, simply email with the answer to the following question:

In what year was the first floodlit rugby union game recorded?
A) 1878
B) 1908
C) 1938

Please include your full name and club along with your answer.

SSE Rugby Energy

Launched in January 2013, SSE Rugby Energy is an initiative developed in partnership with the RFU and Utility Aid to help clubs save money on their energy bills.

By October 2013, 43 clubs have come on supply with SSE through SSE Rugby Energy and have made an average saving of over £800 on each of their annual gas or electricity contracts**. To see if your club could benefit from SSE Rugby Energy, follow these three simple steps:

  • Step 1: Give Utility Aid a call on 0808 1782 022 and they will do all the hard work for you. They will give you advice on your current contract and search the energy market for the best deals available
  • Step 2: Utility Aid will then negotiate a bespoke energy package with SSE on your behalf, and for transparency, benchmark the SSE offer against other energy providers and will take you through the comparable offers
  • Step 3: If the benchmarked comparable offers are a better deal than the SSE negotiated package, SSE will endeavour to price match. These steps ensure Utility Aid present you with a range of offers to choose from

Utility Aid will be contacting clubs to discuss their energy bills. To make things even easier you can provide us with the details of the correct person to speak to, which we will pass on to Utility Aid.

More benefits of SSE Rugby Energy

Every club that signs up to an SSE contract via Utility Aid will go into a monthly prize draw to win training kits, match balls and more. Plus, by registering with, you will have the chance to win even more rugby rewards like England tickets and signed shirts.
