AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 05/12/14 -- SafeGuard World International (SGWI), a leading provider of global managed payroll, global employment outsourcing and international HR services is proud to be a sponsor of the 2014 Collegiate Rugby Championship Invitational which will be held at PPL Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania from May 31 through June 1, 2014.
If history is any indication, this year's Collegiate Rugby Championship (CRC) will feature numerous future USA Eagles' players, who will lead our nation's attempt to qualify for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where Rugby 7s will make its Olympic debut. With college rugby's best talent concentrated in one tournament, the CRC continues to produce professional talent that will represent the USA around the globe. The competition hours are Saturday, May 31st from 11am to 6:30pm, and Sunday, June 1st from 10am to 6pm EDT, and will air on NBC Sports and NBC Sports Network.
"Rugby is the fastest growing sport in America and the 2nd most viewed sport in the world, so partnering with SafeGuard World International, a rapidly growing company with a global perspective, makes perfect sense," said Jeff McDowell, EVP and CMO of United World Sports. "Our unique marketing platform gives SafeGuard World International the ability to connect with some of the most educated and affluent fans in all of sports," he continued.
Founder & CEO of SGWI Bjorn Reynolds commented, "Rugby is a game that has in many ways mirrored the growth of globalization of business; it enjoys increasing appeal, it has welcomed new emerging nations and now, by being reinstated as an Olympic sport at the 2016 Summer Olympics, Rugby 7s has gained global acceptance and earned its status as a mainstream sport."
Bjorn continued, "At SafeGuard World International, we have been growing both our global and our U.S. presence -- with our second U.S. office and the establishment of our new corporate headquarters in Austin, Texas. We proudly support rugby in the U.S., as in our market, we are overtaking the established order, and we are betting on Team USA doing the same for the Olympics. We see rugby as sharing the same values as our organization and we have a common vision to become the new world leaders in our respective fields of competition."
