SONI Real Rugby Heroes of COVID-19
SONI and Ulster Rugby Launch COVID-19 Bursary Fund for Rugby Clubs


SONI (System Operator for Northern Ireland) and Ulster Rugby have launched a bursary fund to support rugby clubs as they plan a return to activity post-COVID-19.

The fund will recognise the efforts of clubs throughout Ulster who have supported their community during the ongoing pandemic. The bursary is an extension of the Real Rugby Heroes initiative which has been running for five years and seeks to reward volunteers who make an invaluable contribution to the domestic game in Ulster.

Clubs will be encouraged to apply for the bursary below and applications will be open for a three-week period, closing at 5 pm on Thursday 25 June. A total fund of £8,000 is available; tiered in three bursary levels of £1000, £500 and £250.

The funds are intended to support clubs with the anticipated expenses of putting in place protocols for a post-COVID-19 return to activity.
