Under Armour Lead Good Luck Messages for the Royal Navy as IDRC Kicks Off
Under Armour Teamsports are delighted to announce the continuation of their association with the Royal Navy Rugby Union as their official kit supplier for the next 4 seasons.
Royal Navy Rugby has a long and distinguished history dating back to 1906 and we at Under Armour are proud to be part of their ongoing success, a premium brand supporting the premium sport of the Senior Service.
We wish all the Royal Navy Rugby Union representative teams a very successful season for 2015-16, and we very much look forward to building on the strong partnership that has been built up between us over the last two years.
We would also like wish the team the very best of luck in the forthcoming International Defence Rugby Competition. This is the second such event with 9 Defence Force teams from around the world competing against the three Service teams of the UK. The competition has been intentionally scheduled to coincide with the Rugby World Cup and will take place throughout October 2015. Having taken part in the inaugural competition held in Australia and New Zealand in 2011 all three home Service Unions, the Royal Navy, the Army and the Royal Air Force, will each host a pool of four, before the successful teams progress through to the knockout stages and a final at the Twickenham Stoop on Thursday 29th October, which we’re sure will attract a large and passionate rugby audience just two days before the Rugby World Cup Final at Twickenham.
The Royal Navy team will be sporting their new away strip in battleship grey for the first time during this competition as well as their newly designed home shirt in traditional navy blue.
IDRC – Round 1 – Thursday October 8th - Royal Navy v Fiji – KO 1900
IDRC – Round 2 – Monday 12 October - Royal Navy v New Zealand – KO 1900
IDRC – Round 3 – Thursday 15 October - Royal Navy v Japan – KO 1900
Please Follow the Team on social media and give them your support.
