Rugby stands to benefit from the Serevi Rugby Nation, which was launched at the USA Rugby Sevens tournament in Las Vegas on February 11.
Waisale Serevi says the venture is aimed at lifting rugby awareness in the United States of America and the participation in rugby at the club, collegiate and youth programme levels through comprehensive coaching programme, clinics and academies.
Serevi also hopes to increase opportunities for players in emerging or underserved rugby markets to compete at the highest levels through a planned Serevi Rugby Nation Foundation.
“The sport of rugby sevens is a beautiful balance of physical competition on the field and camaraderie and community off the field,” Serevi said during the launch.
“While interest and participation in rugby sevens is increasing across the US, there is much work to be done to bring it to the same level as other countries. I look forward to being part of growing the US market for Rugby 7s.”
Serevi Rugby Nation is a multi-channel enterprise comprised of two core lines of business – apparel and rugby development.
The Serevi-line will include custom designed casual and rugby performance-wear inspired by Serevi’s legendary on-field skills and also reflects his Fijian/Pacific Island heritage.
Through Rugby Nation, Serevi will also create a foundation focused on providing opportunities for youth in emerging rugby markets
“I have witnessed first-hand the power of the sport of rugby to lift not only individuals, but entire nations,” he said.
“It is my turn to give back to the sport that has given me so much. Serevi Rugby Nation and my foundation will be a way to increase opportunities for youth, collegiate and club players around the world.”
