The Malaysia Rugby Union in collaboration with Al-Ikhsan Sports today launched the new jersey of the national rugby team under the AL Sports brand at the Al-Ikhsan Sports branch at The Curve Damansara. The collaboration between AL and the Malaysia Rugby Union which has been established since its first launch in 2019 is a success for both parties in developing high performance products as well as the best quality at the elite level of sports. The latest uniform edition will be worn for the first time by the national men’s and women’s rugby teams, known as Bunga Raya 7’s at the 2021 Asian Rugby Sevens Series Championship, which is also a qualifier for the 2022 Rugby World Cup Sevens in South Africa on 19 and 20 November 2021 at Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). The jersey as the host will retain the red color which symbolizes courage and high fighting spirits, while the jersey as the visiting team is white as the choice of color, giving a difference to the appearance of the Bunga Raya squad.
With a thorough testing process of its authentic production of new jerseys, AL Sports has ensured that Malaysian Rugby kits meet the highest demands of quality control through all environments. Vach Pillutla, Chief Executive Officer of Al-Ikhsan Sports said, “Al-Ikhsan Sports always strives to support Malaysian sportsmen and athletes and help them with international standard goods. We believe that this collaboration with the Malaysia Rugby Union is a great testimonial for both parties as the Malaysian Rugby players and fans are poised to wear high quality goods exclusively produced and distributed by Al-Ikhsan Sports.”
Anwar Mamtaj, Brand Manager – AL Sports, commented: “We are very excited to finally introduce the new Malaysian Rugby kit. We know how much this shirt means to players and fans. Modern rugby demands mean our kit needs to be ready for challenges, so we are very proud in pouring all our experience into the development and testing of all our products.”
Present at the auspicious event were: the President of the Malaysia Rugby Union, Dato’ Shahrul Zaman Yahya; former All Blacks captain Rodney So-oaialo, new Malaysia 15s rugby head coach; and Malaysia Rugby Superstar – Muhammad Sameer Muhammad Sani Surinder, etc.
