The Jacksonville Jaguars start their 'Jaguars in the Community' roadshow presented by Visit Florida at the National Schools Rugby 7s at Rosslyn Park, London next week.
The Jaguars will be at the tournament from Monday 23rd until Wednesday 25th March with their roadshow which includes interactive games, giveaways and the chance to win signed Jaguars' merchandise. It will give spectators and players competing in the event an opportunity to experience American Football and encourage them to support the growth of the sport in the UK.
The National Schools Rubgy 7s is the world's largest school rugby tournament with over 7,000 boys and girls aged 13 – 19 competing annually. Over 20 countries are represented at the tournament with teams coming from as far afield as China, Kenya and Canada in previous years. The home nations are always strongly represented and the competition is fierce amongst the top rugby playing schools in the UK.
Jaguars UK Director Laura Oakes commented, "Jaguars in the Community enables the Jaguars to have a presence in the London community throughout the year. With the Jaguars' multi-year commitment to play in the NFL International Series games at Wembley, and our commitment to the UK as a whole, it's important for us to support community events in London and the surrounding area."
"We're dedicated to developing the sport of American Football in the UK and building on the work that grassroots American Football teams are doing across the nation. Whilst the Rosslyn Park 7s is a rugby tournament, there's a lot of crossover between fans of rugby and American Football so it's a great opportunity for us to showcase the Jaguars to the next generation of potential NFL fans."
