Wales’ fastest growing Ed Tech company Aspire2Be has just got Biggar, Dan Biggar that is.
The rapidly expanding educational and beacon technology company, have added the official sponsorship of Dan Biggar to their portfolio of involvement with Wales’ leading rugby region, the Ospreys.
‘Aspire2Be are a local company with a very strong base throughout Ospreylia; we are very big supporters of the region and their aims and objectives’, said Education and Performance Director Simon Pridham. ‘We are already the Ospreys in the Community (OITC) Ed Tech partners, assisting as we do, with the development of their critically acclaimed, award nominated schools programme. Dan Biggar is a wonderful role model to schoolchildren and pupils everywhere and adding him and his iconic number 10 to our sponsorship mix, provides our company with a close association to an outstanding athlete’ he added.
Biggar 26, was the youngest Ospreys player ever to reach 100 games for the region and has almost doubled that figure since. Capped 48 times for his country and in contention for a place with the British Lions, he is famous not only for his rugby prowess but his ‘dancing’, which was made famous by television pundits during the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

‘Dan’s unusual goal kicking routine famously became known to rugby fans throughout the world as the Biggarena – although he has recently promised to tone it down, we very much look forward to seeing our company name, featured on Dan’s back however he goes about his business’, said fellow Aspire2Be Director Jeremy Stephens.
Ospreys new Commercial Manager, Huw Warren added, “Our partnership with Aspire2Be has allowed us to revolutionise our already groundbreaking schools programme, utilising their technology to provide a far more rewarding experience for the participating children, particularly when they visit the Liberty Stadium. As an innovative, forward thinking, Welsh business, looking to make inroads further afield, they are a natural fit with our business, which is at the heart of the local community but with national and international aspirations.
“Their sponsorship of Dan Biggar, one of the most recognisable players in the Welsh game but who is firmly rooted in his community, makes perfect sense for all concerned and we are excited about continuing to grow this relationship.“
Dan himself said, ‘I am delighted to be associated with a company like Aspire2Be, they work hand in hand with OITC the Ospreys community arm, enabling technological competence to be delivered to schools, colleges and universities right across the entire breadth of the region’.
