VIMA Group and Bristol Management Centre are delighted to have agreed to sponsor the new season strip of the 5 RIFLES Rugby Team. The team plays in the Army Championship 1 League, which sees them face some of the best rugby sides in the British Army. The 5 RIFLES side also provide the mainstay of the Infantry team that plays in the Corps competition. A strong finish last season means the team are well placed to compete for a place in the major units Premiership League this season.
5 RIFLES is a Regular Infantry Battalion based in Bulford Camp, Wiltshire and consists of around 600 Riflemen who deploy on training and operations worldwide.
Dean Taylor, Managing Director of VIMA Group said “We are delighted to support grassroots rugby and in particular to give members of our Armed Services the opportunity to enjoy sport.”
