Why become a Partner of the FSR?
"3 main reasons: product fit, values fit, public fit.
1. Product fit: Rugby is a contact sport, and as such not only the muscles are strained, but during the game there are many bruises and sprains, furthermore it is common for rugby players to come across back and joint pain. Our product range is ideal to help every player ease pain and recover during and after the games.
2. Values fit: we share the same values of Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship.
3. Public fit: rugby is growing all over the world, in Switzerland it has grown from 2000 to 5000 members within the last years, including feminine teams! The game has evolved to become more spectacular and attract always more public. We also sponsor ice hockey and there the majority of the teams are on the German speaking part of the country, rugby is opposite and it allows us to grant a better brand presence in the French speaking part of Switzerland."
What are the common values between your company and Rugby?
"Design is a team sport. And rugby is an art. Between the two, there's lots of common ground. I would say passion, creativity, technical skills, and team work. Behind any great result - in sport or in design - there is a dedicated team of hard-working, creative people, full of energy."
Will you advise another company to support the Swiss Rugby?
"I would encourage other companies to support Suisse Rugby or any other sport of their passion. In my case, it is Suisse Rugby because I believe that rugby is a dynamic sport, where teamwork, strategy, creativity, technical know-hows and perseverance all come into place."
How do you consider the evolution of Rugby in Switzerland?
"I hope rugby in Switzerland will continue to grow its fan base, and that our support will play a role in improving FSR’s visibility."
