Zurich is delighted to be title sponsor for the 2018 Zurich Players’ Player of the Year Awards. The awards highlight the great work players are doing as part of a team and also in the community.

Now into its 16th year, the event represents one of the biggest nights in Irish sport, marking itself as the only truly national awards night in Irish rugby.

The Zurich Irish Rugby Players Awards is the greatest individual achievement that a professional rugby player in Ireland can win, given that it is voted on by the entire player group. Zurich looks forward to continuing our work with Rugby Players Ireland, including supporting its "Tackle your Feelings" campaign to improve awareness of the importance of mental wellbeing, launched in 2016.
