The deal extension takes NMU into a third consecutive year as club partners and a second year as title sponsors, which runs from August 2017 through to July 2018.

The Rugby Football Union recently announced a new women’s domestic competition which the Valkyries were successful in their bid to be a part of. The ‘Tyrrells Premier 15s’ competition kicks off on 16th September, with 10 teams competing to take home the inaugural title. The competition will operate in a league format with home and away fixtures. The top four teams will progress to semi-finals played over two legs, culminating in a final on the 29th April.
Alongside the Tyrrells Premier 15s competition a new development league will also be established where each of the 10 clubs’ 2nd XV teams will play in competitive games across the season. NMUs support extends to both the 1st XV and 2nd XV Valkyries teams.
Andy Baldwin, Marketing Executive for NMU said ‘We’re delighted to continue our support for Worcester Valkyries as they embark on their inaugural Premier 15s and development league seasons. It’s an exciting time for the domestic structure in women’s rugby and we’re proud to be part of the history’.
