Stars Rugby 7s Seeks Tour T-Shirt Sponsors!

Stars Rugby 7s program is seeking t-shirt sponsors for our trip to Calgary's Stampede 7s. We are taking one Men's Premier team and two Women's Premier teams to Canada July 3rd-6th to compete against elite North American competition and further develop our player pool in advance of our tour to Central Coast 7s in Australia. In years past this tournament has featured NACRA national teams and several of Canada's 7s players in residency for the 2016 Rio Olympics. This is a valuable touring experience for the growth of our teams and development of our players.

Our rosters feature amateur rugby players from the following programs: Atlanta Harlequins, Berkeley All Blues, Charlotte Rugby Club, Chicago Lions, Florida Atlantic University, Florida International University, Fort Miami Women, Georgia Tech, Hartford Wanderers, Lindenwood University, Milwaukee Barbarians, Monterey Beach Dogs, Notre Dame College, Sacramento Amazons, San Diego Surfers, Twin Cities Amazons, Tampa Krewe, Washington Rugby Football Club (DC), and Youngbloodz.

We are seeking 10 t-shirt sponsors for $200 each. In exchange for a donation sponsors will receive the following:

- your logo on tour t-shirts worn by all players on flights/at trainings/between tournament games
- 2 mentions on the Stars Rugby 7s Facebook page per month leading up to the tournament as well as mentions during tournament play
- a team photo dedicated to/tagging your business/club on the Facebook page
- a weekly mention on #starsrugby7s twitter
- a feature on the Stars Rugby 7s blog
- logos on the Stars Rugby website (coming this summer)

Any interested parties should submit their letter of intent and logos by May 15th. Stars Rugby 7s is also seeking larger sponsorships to include logos on team kit and enhanced social media/marketing promotion. Smaller donations can be made via our gofundme campaign here.
