The ACT & SNSW Rugby Union are pleased to announce Callida Consulting as the naming rights partner for the 2021 Premier First Grade Rugby season.

The partnership will see Callida Consulting become a major partner for both the John I Dent Cup and the Women’s Premier 15s competition.

Callida Consulting is a Canberra based, public sector consulting firm whose purpose is to nurture and enable their people so that their families, communities and country thrive.

They provide the full range of management consulting services with a deep focus on their government clients.

The firm are long-time supporters of rugby in the region, and their support will be invaluable to the continued success of both the Callida Consulting John I Dent Cup and the Callida Consulting Women’s Premier 15s competition.

This Saturday marks the beginning of the 83rd season of the Callida Consulting John I Dent Cup, with the back-to-back champion Canberra Royals kicking off their quest for three titles in a row away to the Uni-Norths Owls.

2020 runners up Gungahlin will host Wests for their opening fixture, the Eagles welcoming Brumbies flyer Solomone Kata into their ranks for the first time.

The Gage Roads game of the week sees Tuggeranong take on Queanbeyan, with the Vikings putting the Bob Hitchcock Territory Shield on the line against the Whites, both sides having plenty of star power in their matchday squads.

Plus500 Brumbies deputy CEO and General Manager Community Rugby, Craig Leseberg said: “We’re excited to have Callida Consulting come on board as naming rights partner for our prestigious first grade competitions, the John I Dent Cup and the Women’s Premier 15s.”

“The competition continues to improve year on year, and we certainly see even more room for the Callida Consulting John I Dent Cup and the Callida Consulting Women’s Premier 15s to continue to grow to be on par with the Sydney and Brisbane Competitions.

“On behalf of the Brumbies and the ACT & SNSW Rugby Union, I want to thank Callida Consulting for their support, and I can’t wait for games to begin this Saturday.”

Callida Consulting Partner Carolyn Brassil said: “We are thrilled to further strengthen our relationship with the Brumbies and rugby here in the ACT with this partnership.”

“Supporting the Canberra community wherever we can is something that is very important to us and helps us fulfil our purpose.”
