Leading offshore law firm, Mourant is proud to announce its sponsorship of the Hong Kong Football Club rugby section for 2020/2021 season.

The partnership supports nine senior league men's and women's teams which represent HKFC Rugby in the Hong Kong Rugby Football Union leagues, over 1,000 boys and girls in the Colts and Mini sections and close to 300 volunteer coaches.

Mourant has a track record of successful rugby sponsor partnerships initially sponsoring the HKFC 10s before sponsoring the Mourant Ozannes Samurai squad over a number of years, and most recently the Mourant Fiji Army at the world renowned tournament.

Now in its 135th year, HKFC remains at the forefront of rugby's development, with the first game of rugby being played at the club in 1886. Today, HKFC remains a driving force for Asian rugby boasting over 1,500 players across all age ranges, and regularly hosting a number of world class events. 

Managing Partner of Mourant in Hong Kong, Paul Christopher said:

"Myself and many of my colleagues have close ties with Hong Kong Football Club, across a variety of teams and sports. I am delighted to recognise the strong links the club has with Mourant, and in particular our playing connections.

"At Mourant we share many of rugby's core values in the work that we do; teamwork, respect and discipline. Our values are reflected in our sponsorship of the HKFC rugby section and show our dedication to the club and the ongoing development of youth players in Hong Kong.

"The club has an incredible history and has enjoyed great success at the highest level in Hong Kong in recent years. We are particularly proud to support the women's teams which have gone from strength to strength. Inclusion is one of our key business priorities so that is of great importance to us. We wish all the teams the best of luck for the season ahead."
