USA Rugby has announced the United States Marine Corps (USMC) as an official partner ahead of the 2018 USA Rugby National Development Summit.
The military branch will host the welcome reception during summit in Denver, Colorado, January 19-21.
As part of the partnership, USMC branding will be visible on USA Rugby materials and USA Rugby managed events across the nation as well as a presence and integration at select events. The partnership was brokered by USA Rugby’s commercial arm, Rugby International Marketing.
David Sternberg, Rugby International Marketing CEO, said: “The Marine Corps is, of course, a remarkable organisation and has a strong connection with the American sports community. We’re very proud to be a part of this family.”
Captain John Grady, advertising officer, Marine Corps Recruiting Command, added: “The Marine Corps recognizes that athletes competing in the sport of rugby share many of the same values as those exhibited by Marines.
“We’re excited to start our partnership with USA Rugby, and look forward to engaging these men and women who exemplify our fighting spirit.”
