Dubai Duty Free continues backing of UAE rugby referees
7DAYS Sport | May 9, 2016
Dubai Duty Free has renewed its support of the UAE Rugby’s Referees Society for a further three-years through to, and including, the 2017/2018 season.
The agreement names Dubai Duty Free as the Federation’s Official Sponsor of UAE Rugby Referees and Match Officials.
As well as positioning on the referees kit and working on UAE-based referee development, a major aspect of the sponsorship allows the UAE Rugby Referees Society to invest and position themselves as a training and development leader within Asia Rugby.
Colm McLoughlin, executive vice chairman of Dubai Duty Free, said: “We continue to be encouraged by the steps the Federation and the Referees Society take to develop, and instil best practices in those individuals who officiate over the game at a local, regional and international level.”
