Moose Clothing to sponsor Sri Lanka Sevens Rugby team
The Moose Clothing Company has tied up with Sri Lanka Rugby (SLR) to sponsor the Sri Lanka National Rugby team which is to take part in the Asia Rugby Sevens Tournament scheduled to kick off in the UAE on November 19 and 20.
The Moose Clothing Company one of the one of the pioneers in the clothing industry, have extended its unstinted support by coming forward as main partners with the National Rugby Team for the tournament.
With Moose Clothing readily extending its fullest support to SLR by availing itself of the sponsorship of the SL National Rugby 7’s team, it has no doubt embarked on uplifting the Sri Lankan flag for this sport in the international arena after supporting the Sri Lanka Cricket. This partnership with SLR is a timely decision which will undoubtedly support the celebration of this sport at a time when countries are slowly emerging out of lockdowns and restrictions amidst economic hardship.
This will not only empower the players to perform their best at the tournament but also strengthen their spirit and make them soar high.
After a layoff of over 20 months of zero rugby, this tournament is the breakthrough that the Sri Lankan Tuskers – both the men & women’s team is looking forward to and with Moose stepping in and extending its sponsorship, SLR has been able to go beyond expectations and has been able to bring in a 7’s specialist coach Ben Gollings to train both squads to face the upcoming tournament.
This upcoming Asia Rugby Sevens Tournament will be the first event for the year with the last event organized by Sri Lanka Rugby (SLR)being the Inter Club XV a side event in February 2020.
The tournament in November will host 16 Men’s and Women’s teams running concurrently, and will act as an Asian Qualifier for the Rugby Sevens World Cup 2022 which is to be held in South Africa as well as a ranking tournament for the Asian Games 2022 which is scheduled to be held in Hangzhou, China in the coming year.
