Hydra Arc sponsors 7’s Rugby Team for International Tour
Next year will see the South African Rhino 7’s compete in the Dallas Harlequins 7’s Tournament in Dallas, Texas.
7’s Rugby is growing in popularity both in South Africa, and especially in The United States. The inaugural Dallas 7’s Tournament hosted this year proved a huge success with already a strong following and support base. It promises to be even bigger in 2017.
The South African Rhinos are among many of the international teams that will compete, including New Zealand, Argentina, Cayman Islands and North America. The tournament presents an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the players; giving them an opportunity to interact and play against other international teams. What is more, scouts from numerous USA rugby programs and universities will be in attendance. Last year five South African players got offered bursaries by leading USA universities.
With this in mind the Hydra Arc Group of Companies decided to back the local players as the main sponsor, ensuring they get the chance to take part in this unique opportunity. Hydra Arc will also be sponsoring two of the players and a coach. One of the players’ father is a long-time employee of Hydra Arc and was emotionally overwhelmed by the good news, knowing he would not have been able to provide his son with this opportunity, without the help of a sponsor.
The event takes place in Dallas, Texas between 11 – 20 July 2017 and streamed live on SuperSport.
Hydra Arc is proud to be associated with the local sportsmen representing South Africa abroad. They wish the team the best of luck and know they will to their best to make their fellow South Africans proud.
