TagBOKS are looking for sponsorship as a Tag Rugby team attending the World Cup.

 

TagBOKS – Tag Rugby: We’d like to introduce you to Tag South Africa, more affectionately known as “The TagBOKS”, we represent the UK based arm of the organisation and are writing to express our interest in forming a partnership with someone as we seek sponsorship for our teams.

Tag Rugby is one of the fastest growing, inclusive social versions of Rugby in the world, numbers in the UK growing to over 10,000 active players in 2021 according to Try Tag Rugby, the UK based organisers of the sport. To grow the game in South Africa, Tag SA spotted the opportunity to tap into the well-established SA expat community in London and establish our UK based coaching and management teams to recruit and train players in both hemispheres. The goal, to enter multiple competitive teams across age & gender categories for the International Tag Federation World Cup taking place August 2023 in Limerick, Ireland. Further to this the Tag Rugby Association – South Africa is bidding to host the ITF World Cup in Cape Town 2026.

We understand the importance of strong partnerships to realise our goals and would like to explore the possibility of aligning our team with a sponsor. With your support, we will be able to provide great looking, top-quality kit & equipment for training and matches. We will be able to cover the cost of training on high quality surfaces with adequate facilities. We will also be able to assist with the costs of entry fees to leagues, tournaments, and travel & accommodation at the World Cup in Limerick. Our motto for the year is “Leave no TagBOK behind”. All these direct effects would contribute to growing the sport here in the UK and back in South Africa.

In return for sponsorship and depending on the level of partnership, we would provide a range of benefits including brand exposure, high engagement, access via events and socials, as well as the overall charity effect with the opportunity to get those from impoverished backgrounds to the World Cup.

We would love to discuss this further with you.
