Mumbai : In a boost to the sport of rugby in India, Capgemini on Wednesday announced its partnership with the Indian Rugby Football Union (IRFU).
Under this, Capgemini India will support development of India’s Rugby 7s men’s, women’s, boys and girls’ teams.
“We are delighted to partner with IRFU on Rugby 7s as this marks a new chapter in our association with rugby and our first entry into sports in India,” Ashwin Yardi, chief executive officer of Capgemini in India, said in a release issued here.
“The story of the growth of rugby as a sport in India is a story of diversity and inclusion. Our commitment to spreading the sport amongst underprivileged populations is as sharp as it is to those who live in more fortunate circumstances,” Rahul Bose, president of Rugby India, added.
