We are delighted to announce that for the second consecutive year SAMURAI will be the official kit and ball supplier of the Premier Rugby Sevens tournament; the groundbreaking professional sports league in North America.
Last year's inaugural championship of 2021 took place at the AutoZone Park in Memphis, Tennessee and was a roaring success. The competition saw the electrifying sport of rugby sevens played across the United States and Canada and showcased the impressive abilities of the players in both the men’s and women’s teams.
This year, the tournament is set to be bigger and better than ever, with efforts expanded to hold a whole season, including multiple tournaments, added focus on accessibility and brand new content for fans.
The design process has already begun for the Experts, Loonies, Loggerheads and Headliners, and all will be revealed prior to the season’s beginning, starting in San Jose and followed by Washington D.C. and Austin.
“As a longtime advocate of rugby sevens, SAMURAI played an integral role in our league’s debut last fall, and I’m thrilled they will be our partner into the future,” said Owen Scannell, CEO of Premier Rugby Sevens. “PR7s players and fans provided incredibly positive feedback about our SAMURAI products in 2021. We look forward to revealing our new looks, as we introduce PR7s to new audiences and North American markets.”
It is a privilege to supply and support the tournament and we are proud to associate with the first league of its kind - one where both women’s and men’s teams are equally paid. SAMURAI are set to supply on-field match kits, contemporary leisurewear and match balls for all teams and events.
