Fueled by Filipino passion, David’s Salon and the Philippine Lady Volcanoes are once again teaming up to build women empowerment in style. The national women’s rugby team of the Philippines and Philippine Rugby have proudly inked a new partnership which extends the level of support to 2020.
“It’s always great to have a solid foundation of support, David Charlton has supported rugby for many years and continues to do so. It’s a boost for our women’s program as the ladies continually work hard on the field. Off the pitch this is a partnership the ladies and our Philippine Rugby community will be able to use for their personal care and appearance” shared Jake Letts, Philippine Rugby’s General Manager.
The partnership extends until the end of 2020 with David’s Salon being recognised as an official sponsor of not only the National Women’s Team, but also Philippine Rugby. The sponsorship will see David Salon promoted across over twenty events in Philippine Rugby’s domestic calendar and also overseas with the national team in four international events.The Lady Volcanoes are ready for battle in 2019, eyeing off four international competitions across Asia. The Volcanoes are already in preparations for their first tournament of the year in Borneo on March 23 and 24 before their participation in the 2019 Asia Rugby Women’s Championships. All eyes will be on the Lady Volcanoes as they continue their journey towards the 2019 Southeast Asian Games in December.
“Women’s rugby is gaining traction worldwide, its following suit in the Philippines also. We currently have four clubs competing competitively in the 2019 JML Premiership Shield, a first in our history. Additionally there are women’s teams also in Cebu, Davao and General Santos. Companies like to see growth in the market, Women’s Rugby is one of those markets. With the growth, our national team is also looking to boost their rankings in international events, which are they are very much capable of achieving” added Letts.
