Mourant Hong Kong signs sponsorship deal with Fiji Army Rugby Team for 2019 Tens tournament
11 February 2019
We're proud and excited to be a title sponsor of the Mourant Fiji Army squad making its debut at the GFI HKFC 10s rugby tournament in Hong Kong on 3-4 April. The Fijians are among this year’s top contenders in the hotly anticipated tournament, with a team including Olympic Gold Medallist Apisai Domolailai.
Paul Christopher, Hong Kong Managing Partner, said: “We're really excited to be a part of the hotly anticipated tournament, as this year looks set to reach a new level in terms of the quality of teams participating. It makes it even more exciting for us to be involved and to be giving our clients the opportunity to meet the Fiji team players. Mourant Fiji Army are an exciting prospect and have an excellent reputation, so sports enthusiasts will be keen to see how they progress. There is also the potential prospect of a unique double – Mourant Fiji Army winning the GFI HKFC 10s and Fiji winning the Hong Kong Sevens! This type of sponsorship not only complements the idea of global perspective, as the tournament attracts top teams from across the world putting Hong Kong on the centre stage, it also reflects core values that are important to us – teamwork, collaboration, well-being and sportsmanship. We know Fiji Army will bring these attributes to Hong Kong, along with the creativity and flair for which Fijian players are renowned."
Since 1986, the Hong Kong 10’s has been organised by the Hong Kong Football Club, who held it to commemorate the club’s centenary. Subsequently it has grown to become the world’s best rugby 10’s tournament, playing host to some of the globes top players and teams.
Mourant has a track record of successful partnerships with HKFC 10s tournament teams, sponsoring the Samurai squad in 2016 and 2017.
