Land Rover provides fleet of 450 vehicles to support Rugby World Cup

The specially liveried Discovery Sport, Discovery, Range Rover Sport and Range Rover models will provide transport for match officials, event support staff and VIPs over the 44-day competition, covering an anticipated total of 650,000 miles – enough to drive around the world 26 times.

To mark the hand-over of the final vehicle and celebrate its support of the event, Land Rover created a unique installation using 450 Land Rover keys – one for every vehicle on the fleet – suspended in the shape of a rugby ball.

Land Rover’s fleet and business general manager Jon Wackett said: “We are proud and excited to be supporting Rugby World Cup 2015 as the tournament returns to the UK. Discovery Sport is the perfect vehicle to lead the fleet as its compact dimensions, flexible 5+2 seating and advanced connectivity features provide versatility and capability in equal measure.”
