Varsity Rugby and Cricket
In conjunction with Pol Roger, Glenfarclas is proud to sponsor The Varsity Match (Rugby) held at Twickenham in December, and The University Match (Cricket), held at Lords in June, between Oxford and Cambridge. Both Pol Roger and Glenfarclas remain fiercely independent and unrivalled in their reputation for quality, values synonymous with the tradition of these sporting occasions.
The Glenfarclas Quaich
The Glenfarclas Quaich Challenge Match was born out of the sponsorship of the Varsity Match at Twickenham, and the inaugural match was held in 2013 on the hallowed turf of the Honorary Artillery Company, Moorgate. The match pits a select City of London XV against a mixed Oxbridge Colleges XV, the first time the two universities have come together to form such a team.
The Glenfarclas Cross Country Series at Cheltenham
Glenfarclas sponsor a series of five major Cross Country Steeplechases across three countries, culminating with The Glenfarclas Cross Country Handicap Chase at the Cheltenham Festival in March. The Glenfarclas Cross Country Handicap Chase is a National Hunt chase in Great Britain which is open to horses aged five years or older and is run on the Cross-Country Course at Cheltenham over a distance of about 3 miles and 7 furlongs (6,236 metres); during its running there are thirty-two obstacles to be cleared. John Grant, Chairman of Glenfarclas, said: “We are very proud to be associated with such a prominent series of races at Cheltenham and believe it to be in perfect synergy with the Glenfarclas brand.”
