Harlequins Rugby Union

Ahead of the Pack
After the huge success of Rugby World Cup 2011 in New Zealand and with RWC 2015 to take place in England, DHL’s partnership with the Harlequins Rugby Union is a perfect match between the country’s top rugby team and the world’s leading express and logistics company.

The Harlequins Rugby Union is a historic club founded in 1866. Having won the Rugby Football Union Clubs knockout competition on two occasions – the John Player Cup in 1988 and Pickington Cup in 1991, “The Quins” became the first British side to win the European Shield in 2001. The club’s instinct for the expansive game of rugby doubtlessly accounts for its liking of the seven-a-side version of the sport. In the premier tournament (Middlesex Sevens), no other club has won more than 13 occasions.

From 2011 to 2013, the Quins secured three championship trophies in as many seasons: the 2011-12 Aviva Premiership, the 2012-13 Aviva A League and the LV= Cup. The boys of Twickenham Stoop nearly captured a historic treble and back-to-back Aviva Premiership Championships later that year.

DHL joined forces with the Harlequins Rugby Union in August 2012 to become the club’s Official Logistics Partner. We look forward to continuing our support not only as the world’s leading express and logistics company, but also as an experienced partner in the sport of Rugby. We aim to play even a small role in the club’s continued success.
