The 2015/16 season at Wasps has seen Land Rover launch their search for deserving match-day mascots. In a joint initiative with Wasps, Land Rover have asked coaches at local clubs to nominate players aged between seven and fourteen years of age to be Wasps match-day mascots, explaining what their We Deal In Real credentials are to be entitled to this privilege. The successful mascots are provided with a truly memorable match-day experience, that will live long in the memory. Wasps captain James Haskell commented: This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for youngsters to be at the very heart of professional rugby and share a special moment with the Wasps team. It s always a great honour to walk out onto the pitch representing your rugby club, so it will be a fantastic experience for the mascots selected and for the Wasps players. The successful mascots have been given their own profile by Land Rover in the Wasps match-day programme, to make the event even more special for them. In addition, the match-day programme will include a nod to their local club, assisting to help raise their profile. Land Rover is committed to grassroots rugby and with the assistance of Wasps, will continue to assist the growth of the game in the best way possible.
