Gloucester Rugby is proud to partner with the WCD Group for hydration. In a bid to become more sustainable, a variety of environmentally friendly drinking water solutions that provide chilled and filtered water have been installed at Kingsholm Stadium for fans, staff and also the players to use. Based on Gloucester Business Park, the WCD Group has installed a number of high capacity, plumbed in refill water dispensers, bar taps and chillers in high footfall areas in the stadium shop, 1873 Ricoh Lounge and reception for use on match days and for conference delegates. Water coolers are also in use at the club’s training ground for players to refill sports bottles and stay hydrated. To kick off the relationship, the WCD Group presented all staff and the playing squad with their very own co-branded Gloucester red Chilly’s reusable bottle, personalised for hygiene and very well received. Alex Brown, COO at Gloucester Rugby, commented: “As we continue to improve our sustainability initiatives at Gloucester Rugby, we are introducing ways to reduce our plastic waste. By partnering with the WCD Group and installing refill drinking water stations we will reduce single-use plastic water bottles allowing staff, fans, and delegates to refill their own flasks.
