Bream RFC has partnered with Hartpury University’s Sports Business Hub to help develop a new eco-friendly clubhouse. The club will provide students on Hartpury’s new MSc Sports Management programme with the opportunity to help deliver the new clubhouse at its High Street ground in the coming years.
Planning permission for the new “low energy” clubhouse was secured earlier this year.
To develop the new clubhouse in areas including business management and marketing, the club will offer Hartpury students the opportunity to gain real-world experience whilst delivering a carbon neutral building fit for purpose.
The partnership will begin later this month and Richard Leppington, district councillor for Bream, hopes this is a relationship that can continue for many years to come.
“This is such an exciting partnership that will give us a huge amount of expertise. Not only will it save us thousands of pounds in consultant fees, but will give students a chance to put their theory-based learning into practice,” Richard said.
Dr Alex Kay, Lecturer in Sports Business Management at Hartpury University said: “Hartpury University is delighted to partner with Bream RFC on this exciting project as part of our new Sports Management Masters programme.
“The partnership will be developed by the Hartpury Sports Business hub and allows students to work closely with industry on real projects that can have a big impact in the local community.
“The partnership with Bream RFC will focus on the launch of the new clubhouse and provides students with an opportunity to make a real contribution to the sporting industry as part of their studies.”
The new MSc Sports Management programme covers a broad range of subjects including real world issues in sports management, strategic leadership, business consultancy and digital marketing.
