EY becomes USA Rugby’s Official Principal Partner

USA Rugby has struck a deal to make professional services provider EY the the Official Principal Partner of their Men’s and Women’s senior national teams.

The two-year partnership will include the Men’s and Women’s senior national teams participation in the 2019 Rugby World Cup and the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

As Principal Partner, EY will provide business strategy, digital and technological transformation services to USA Rugby.

Beginning this month, both the USA Men’s and Women’s senior national teams will be outfitted in EY-branded Canterbury match and training kit.

Ross Young, USA Rugby chief executive, said: “EY has a global reputation not only in the corporate world but for its commitment to supporting sport and its diverse communities of athletes.

“We believe this reputation, aligned with EY’s focus on using D&I strategies to drive business objectives, combined with their innovation and transformation capabilities will enable USA Rugby to transform and elevate our organisation.”
