GRA LAUNCHES PwC WOMEN’S 7S RUGBY TOURNAMENT IN ACCRA

The Ghana Rugby Association on Monday 20th May 2013 Launched the 2013 Pricewaterhouse Coopers Women’s 7s Rugby Tournament.

This is about PwC’s 7th sponsored rugby program in the company’s 10-year relationship with Rugby.

The magic started in 2003 when Mr. Mark Appleby, a partner at PwC served on the board of Ghana Rugby Association. In 2005 PwC was a co-sponsor for the Confederation of African Rugby (CAR) Under 18 Tournament hosted in Ghana at Obuasi. They then went ahead to sponsor the Junior and Senior High Schools 15s Rugby League in 2007 and 2008. 2009 saw PwC co-sponsoring the first (CAR) North-West Africa Women’s 7s Tournament at El-Wak. PwC has sponsored the Women’s 7s Tournament ever since, and it gets better by the year.

This year the tournament has been split into two; the first will take place on Saturday 25th May 2013 at the Ajax Park of the University of Ghana, and the second on at the Robert Mensah Sports Stadium in Cape Coast later in the year.

The next step for GRA and PwC is to host an International Friendly Women’s game.

Participating clubs in the Accra Tournament include; University of Ghana, Spartan Ladies, Cosmos Ladies and Warrior Ladies.

We are Very grateful to our media partners who have not relented over the years, in trying to publicize the game of rugby.
