Tackling Numbers Shortlisted For A Sports Marketing 360 Award

Premiership Rugby and MBNA’s ground-breaking Tackling Numbers programme has been shortlisted for an award at the Sports Marketing 360 Awards in the “Making a Difference” category.

Tackling Numbers is a rugby-themed numeracy programme that aims to teach 8-9 year olds the importance of number skills in everyday life, through both classroom sessions and practical number-based rugby games.

John Greaves, Corporate Communications Director for MBNA, said: “We have been thrilled with the success of the Tackling Numbers programme and with the positive feedback it has received. We believe it is important to equip young people with the knowledge and tools to help them manage their money in the future. Engaging them in mathematics in a practical and enjoyable way, with some of the stars of English rugby, allows us to provide a foundation for good financial literacy in adulthood.”

Votes can be cast at www.sportsmarketing360.com/awards until the 5th September 2012.
