At a press conference and cocktail party last Friday evening, Eddie Evans Chairman of the Bangkok International Tens and Peter Lucas, Regional General Manager, Oakwood Asia Pacific, announced the signing a sponsorship agreement with Oakwood for the tournament in February 2013. Oakwood were also the principle tournament sponsor in 2012.
This has been a rewarding sponsorship for both stakeholders with Oakwood’s commitment to support Asia’s premier Rugby Tens tournament. Eddie Evans expressed his appreciation saying, “This is a humbling gesture for Oakwood to extend their partnership with the Bangkok International Tens. We are very pleased with this development."
Similarly, this venture has been a positive catalyst for rugby in Thailand and an opportunity for Oakwood, the world’s leading provider of furnished and serviced corporate apartments and residences, to partner with a program that serves the local community.
Funds raised during the tournament go to the Nak Suu Rugby Academy, a program to support underprivileged children in Klong Toey.
