Ricoh has been the Official Document Services Provider to Premiership Rugby since 2014. Partnership with Premiership Rugby and its 12 clubs provides Ricoh with a number of invaluable and unique assets that allow us to engage with rugby fans on both business-to-business and consumer levels.
Ricoh’s new Rugby Change Series campaign aims to identify and analyse the major changes in rugby that have occurred over the years; in terms of the players and behind the scenes strategy as well as how spectators view and consume the game.
The campaign identifies six key areas of the game which have seen significant change and will delve deeper into these topics on a regular basis. Our brand ambassadors - Ben Kay and Maro Itoje - also join the debate; discussing the changes they have witnessed and how these changes have shaped the modern game.
