The Indian Rugby Football Union (IRFU), aka Rugby India, introduced the ‘Get into Rugby’ program in 2012- a World Rugby initiative, to promote and grow the sport globally.
The aim of the programme is to encourage players of all ages to Try, Play and Stay in Rugby. Get Into Rugby promotes the values of the Game- Integrity, Respect, Solidarity, Passion and Discipline. The idea of this program is to ensure that children are encouraged to try Rugby in a safe and progressive environment.
SocieteGenerale is also assertively supporting the ‘Get Into Rugby’ program in India. An initiative aimed to harness the potential sports talent from the grassroots in the country, especially at locations where resources are limited. Through this initiative, SocieteGenerale is committed to make Rugby accessible to everyone and build a strong national team to compete at the global level.
