Energy Firm to Power Rugby Stadium with 100% Renewable Energy


The power behind Cardiff Blues will be Green for the 2019/20 season!

In line with their commitment to sustainability, Cardiff Blues and Octopus Energy have today announced a new partnership ahead of the club’s 2019/20 season.

As the Welsh rugby union team’s official energy supplier, Octopus Energy will power the Cardiff Arms Park stadium with 100% renewable energy, turning the legendary Blues green.  But work will not end there – throughout the partnership, Octopus Energy will also extend and encourage the switch to fairly priced, clean energy with fans and associated rugby clubs.

Fans who want to use the same renewable energy as Cardiff Blues can sign up to Octopus Energy via this link and in doing so will be contributing towards the Cardiff Blues Community Foundation.

Commenting on the partnership, Zoisa Walton, Director of Octopus Energy for Business, says: 

“We’ve known Cardiff Blues for some time and have been really impressed with their reputation for environmental and sustainable activity working together with partners. We think they are the perfect partner to help us tackle growing climate issues and raise awareness of the place that clean energy has in our sustainable future.

“The club’s Community Foundation uses sport and education to inspire, engage and improve communities – and we’re delighted to power such a forward-thinking team.

Richard Holland, Cardiff Blues CEO, adds: 

“Cardiff Blues is thrilled to announce our partnership with Octopus Energy, and it marks a further step forward in making our city more sustainable.

“We are really proud to lead the way in switching to power that doesn’t have to cost the earth and look forward to supporting others in our community that may wish to do the same.“

The partnership deepens an already successful relationship between Octopus Energy and Cardiff Blues, with the former providing green power to the rugby club since 2018. This is Octopus Energy’s second major partnership with a sports club, following a long-standing relationship with Arsenal Football Club, supplying the Emirates stadium and Colney Wood training ground with 100% renewable energy.
