Gilbert supporting referees around the world

Gilbert Rugby News — Published on February 8 , 2017

In August 2016, Gilbert signed a three year deal with the London Society of Referees to be their official on and off-field kit supplier.

The LSRFUR have more than 500 qualified referee members, who officiated over 10,000 rugby matches last season, enabling 300,000 players to participate in rugby safely.

24 members of the LSRFUR have gone on to referee at International Level, having progressed from age-group rugby all the way through to adults and beyond thanks to the referee pathways.


The society recently took part in a successful trip to Dubai, kitted out head to toe in Gilbert, all bought using the LSRFUR Webshop. Steve Biles from the society got in touch with us to tell us about his experience with Gilbert so far.


“The London Rugby Referees recently joined forces with Gilbert Rugby a well-known rugby brand as their principal off field kit supplier, Gilbert provided a web platform for sales which has been a massive success. We are so pleased with this new partnership. The kit is a very high quality, delivery is prompt and from across 500 referees all I hear are compliments about the Gilbert brand and service.  We have a 3 year deal set up with Gilbert one which I have no regrets over, thanks to both Luke and Josh for help in forming the relationship.”


Gilbert are delighted to be at the centre of the game by supporting the RFU Referees, and supplying the referee kits to European Rugby, the Varsity Game and the Rio Olympics Rugby Sevens.
