RUGBY FOCUS: CONTENT WRAP-UP
Kukri Sports is pleased to have showcased its commitment and expertise in rugby with over a month’s worth of dedicated, exclusive content.
We were proud to highlight our invaluable partnerships with rugby teams and educational institutions from around the world, showcasing our support on and off the pitch and how we aim to inspire players to perform to their maximum potential.
Among the partnerships featured were Waikato Rugby, based in New Zealand, who Kukri have been the proud official kit supplier of since 2009. Founded in 1921, Waikato have a long-standing history of rugby culture and success at all levels of the game, producing 63 All Blacks and consistently among the top performing provincial unions in the country.

Ulster, who became the first Irish team and first team outside of England & France to win the European Cup in 1999, are set to embark on a new season after reaching the quarter-final of the United Rugby Championship last season.

Around the World
We were also proud to shine a light on some of our other rugby partners from around the world. These included Rugby Alberta, the provincial administrative body for rugby union in Alberta, Canada. Kukri have been a proud partner of Rugby Alberta for over a decade, servicing both their age grade programmes and their high-performance group – ‘The Wolf Pack’.
Another partner to feature was Rugby School, a leading British education institution whose heritage and prestige is world-renowned. As part of the partnership, we provide a full range of bespoke sportswear for staff and pupils, both on and off the field.
UBC Women’s Rugby Team are another partner that we are proud to have shone a light on recently. The team are part of the UBC Thunderbirds Athletics and Recreation franchise based in Vancouver, Canada. The team have enjoyed great success over recent years after being crowned Canada West Women’s Rugby Champions in four of the last five seasons, and we are honoured to fuel their journey to greatness by collaborating with them on their playing kit and specific rugby apparel.
We were also proud to highlight our partnerships with North Brisbane Rugby Club and Grasshoppers Club Zürich Rugby, with the latter being the second oldest rugby club in Switzerland. Kukri’s relationship with the Swiss club dates back almost two decades, and we are proud to be their kit suppliers for on and off-field sportswear and merchandise.

It was also fantastic to be able to showcase the continued success of our longstanding partnerships with rugby teams and education institutions in the Middle East. Bahrain RFC, traditionally one of the finest and historical sporting clubs in the region, have been an official partner since 2013.
Meanwhile, Dubai College has also been a proud partner of the business for over a decade. They offer a vibrant rugby programme, allowing athletes to improve their rugby and individual skills. Their teams have excelled over recent years, with the U18’s girls team becoming the first UAE representatives to compete in the prestigious Rosslyn Park 7s last year, whilst the U19 girls team triumphed in their first Emirates Dubai 7s tournament to win the Sevens Gulf U19 girls title.
