A piece of good news awaits for all Indian Rugby players as well as the fans as the Odisha government and the Indian Rugby Football Union (IRFU) has signed an agreement on Tuesday to collectively sponsor the Indian national rugby teams for the coming three years. They will sponsor them until 2023 to facilitate the high-performance training and conditioning of the players. They will extend the sponsorships for provision of proper training, conditioning and incentivising the Indian national rugby teams (men and women) participating in any international events. Odisha has already produced some famous rugby players. The state has been promoting rugby a lot and earlier has supported the national hockey team for five years and the ISL team Odisha FC.
