The team at Ruck Science is pleased to announce our partnership with one of Arizona’s most successful clubs, Tucson Rugby. The partnership, between the Tuscon Rugby Club, and Ruck Science, LLC is set to begin on May 6th, 2016.
About Tucson Rugby
Tucson Rugby are one of the most active and successful rugby associations in Arizona. Founded in 1980 by three Arizona University players, The Magpies have consistently won not only championships at all levels, but also awards for sportsmanship, team spirit and pride. Their U-19 team, the Black Birds, are one of the top youth programs in Arizona.
Hosted by the Tucson Rugby Football Club, Pima County Stadium District, and Visit Tucson, the western portion of the National Quarterfinal/Semifinal weekend, May 21 and May 22, will be at the Kino Sports Complex and promises to be a showcase for rugby in the American southwest.
"The Tucson rugby community is truly an international rugby community with a rich history that reaches back nearly five decades," said John Rouff of Tucson Rugby. "In the eighties and nineties the Michelob Classic brought international rugby clubs to Tucson on an annual basis, so we are excited to be able to reestablish Tucson as a rugby destination."
What this means for Tucson Rugby
This agreement with Ruck Science provides an additional fundraising opportunity for Tucson Rugby. While most Ruck Science customers are active rugby players, we also provide a series of lifestyle products and general health supplements. Items like our SuperBeets powder for example, have a range of health benefits. SuperBeets is widely used by non-rugby players with circulatory and high blood pressure problems.
For anyone associated with Tucson Rugby, this partnership represents an opportunity for the club to earn obligation-free revenue courtesy of our sponsorship program. Any time a player, member, friend or fan makes a purchase on ruckscience.com, you’ll be asked to enter the name of your rugby club at checkout. Please list “Tucson Magpies”, and every month we’ll donate 10% on all purchases, 15% on all purchases over $150, and 20% on all purchases over $300 to the club.
What this means for Ruck Science
Tucson Rugby are one of the first rugby clubs in Arizona to take advantage of the Ruck Science sponsorship program. As we look to grow the program across the U.S., we hope that the Magpies and other clubs across the country will be able to grow with us. We’ll be doing everything we can to assist Tucson Rugby with fundraising and youth development programs in 2016 and beyond.
