Supporting grassroots sport since 1992

Buildcorp’s support of the grassroots rugby community has grown over the last 30 years and our commitment to rugby and balanced teams provides opportunities and pathways for men and women of all backgrounds.

Such as our aims in business, we also aim to help build a pipeline of well-rounded team players who develop transferrable skills to become leaders and role models on and off the field.

Buildcorp Wallaroos

Australian Women’s XVs Rugby.

As rugby entered a new era, Buildcorp aimed to be a ‘Sponsor for Change’ by signing-up as the first naming rights sponsor for the National Women’s XVs Rugby team, the Buildcorp Wallaroos in 2016.

Since its establishment, the Buildcorp Wallaroos have played a World Cup in Ireland, a 4-Nations Test series in New Zealand and the first Bledisloe Cup double header on Australian soil in 2018. In 2019 they won their first standalone test series on home soil against Japan and competed in the 2022 World Cup in New Zealand.

Buildcorp Super W

The Buildcorp Super W provides the missing rugby link between women’s club rugby and the national team, the Buildcorp Wallaroos.

Our desire to ensure that the pathway to national selection was as close to the men’s pathway as possible, lead us to support this missing link by becoming the naming rights sponsor in 2018 of this five-week Women’s XVs rugby competition.

With five teams, one from each of the four Australian rugby franchises plus a team from the Western Force, the Buildcorp Super W gives players significantly more playing opportunities and a chance to represent their state in a week-in, week-out competition. The Buildcorp Super W enhances the pathway to the Buildcorp Wallaroos.

In 2018, Buildcorp’s support of these University clubs extended to their Aon University 7s competition teams.

It is an intense, contact team sport played by males and females in eight-minute quarters.

University of Queensland Rugby Football Club (UQRFC)

Recognising our geographic growth, Buildcorp extended our successful association with university sports becoming the major sponsor for men and women of the University of Queensland Rugby Football Club Red Heavies in 2008.

Buildcorp is proud to sponsor the men’s and women’s 15’s, 7’s, Junior Red Heavies, and wheelchair programs. The Club is the most successful Brisbane Club having won 25 First Grade Premierships throughout its decorated past, the most recent being in 2021.

From Buildcorp’s perspective, the partnership which encompasses shared values and passion for team sport and community investment, has contributed to their ongoing growth and success in Queensland.

The UQ Rugby Club provides an environment where excellence and academic achievements are encouraged and extolled. Many of the Club’s players have been rewarded with state and national representative honours whilst others have further contributed to the game as coaches, managers or administrators.

“Our relationship with Buildcorp goes a lot deeper than the sponsorship. They are part of the Red Heavies family and have been with us all the way. When we needed additional support for our 7’s program, they were first to put up their hand. Similarly, when we needed assistance with the introduction of our Wheelchair Rugby team a couple of years ago, they were there. We can’t thank them enough.” – UQ Rugby President, David Muir
