Back in August 2020, supporters who signed up to Premier Sports’ annual subscription using an exclusive Ospreys discount code saw £10 from each sign-up donated back to the regional rugby franchise.
Thanks to the huge generosity from Ospreys Supporters, we’re delighted to announce that £3,380 has been raised and will be donated to Ospreys in the Community to help fund some of the fantastic initiatives they have running.
Tom Sloane, Community Foundation Manager said: “Whilst the Ospreys have been unable to welcome supporters to the Liberty Stadium during the 20/21 season, they haven’t missed a second of the action thanks to signing up to Premier Sports’ exclusive offer.
“We’re extremely grateful for the support of this donation. As a charity we rely heavily on contributions and fundraising to sustain the work we do in the community.
“As a thank you, we want supporters to have their say on how the funds are allocated by selecting one of our programmes here. Off the back of the vote, we will distribute the funding across our projects in the running allowing us to engage with more individuals and groups across the community.
“We’d like to thank everyone who signed up and looking forward to the day when we can welcome everyone back safely into the stands once again.”
Supporters can choose from our Sporting Memories project, our inclusive community clubs or our ongoing work with Action for Children.

The Sporting Memories project supports older people living with dementia, depression and loneliness by engaging them in social activities and helping them to recall memories of watching or playing sport. By sharing memories and tapping into a passion for sport the project helps people to connect with others and with their past, reawakening positive thoughts and feelings that otherwise remain hidden away.
Action for Children
OitC and Action for Children work together across various programmes to improve the mental health and wellbeing of the children and young people around the community. Action for Children has already worked with Ospreys in the Community team on establishing ‘Bouncing Back’ in the region to support and improve the mental health and wellbeing of young people in secondary schools. The programmes and new partnership is fantastically supported by Ospreys Commercial Partners Philtronics Ltd.
Inclusive Community Clubs
Young people aged between six and 16 with a range of disabilities and needs are now attending fun-based, Inclusive Community Clubs (ICCs) around Wales led by engaging community coaches who are in tune with the needs of the young people. Open to children aged 6 to 16 years old of all abilities, the clubs allow families and friends to play non-contact rugby and have fun together ensuring there is a #JerseyForAll.
