Rugby in India has received a shot in the arm as worldwide partners of World Rugby, Capgemini announced its partnership with the Indian Rugby Football Union (IRFU) on Wednesday. Capgemini will support the development of India’s Rugby 7s men’s, women’s, boys and girls teams.
Rahul Bose, the president, Rugby India said, “The story of the growth of rugby as a sport in India is a story of diversity and inclusion. Today our women’s program is as strong as our men’s, our outreach to tribal youth in different parts of the country is as deep as in non-tribal areas.
“Our commitment to spreading the sport amongst underprivileged populations is as sharp as it is to those who live in more fortunate circumstances.”
